LAGOS, (CAJ News) – SOUTH Africa is encouraging its companies in the electro-technical sector to take part in the West African Power Industry Convention (WAPIC) in Lagos later this year.

Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry (DTI), Mzwandile Masina, urged the companies to apply for participation by submitting the National Pavillion forms before June 24.

“WAPIC is an exhibition which gives exporting companies access to an emerging high-growth market through the provision of a platform to showcase pioneering technology and innovative products in the electro-technical sector,” Masina said from the capital Pretoria.

He said the exhibition would build on the successes of his Department’s participation at WAPIC 2015 by providing a lucrative platform for South African manufacturers of products and related services from the electro-technical sector.

“Showcasing South African expertise in this sector which in turn will increase exports,” said Masina.

DTI will provide assistance to the participating companies through the Export Marketing and Investment Assistance Scheme (EMIA) in the form of air travel, subsistence allowance, payment of exhibition space, as well as
freight forwarding of display material.

WAPIC 2016 is set for November 23-24.

Some 90 exhibitors from around the world are scheduled to attend.
