Impact of trade war on South Africa: Xolelwa Mlumbi
 
10:24
Well the markets have been on edge over the impact of the trade dispute between the US and its big trading partners. And South Africa is also being affected directly. Exporters have been affected by higher import duties on steel and aluminium entering the United States. And now the US government is mulling possible duties on vehicle and vehicle component parts. That could affect South Africa's efforts to attract the world 's top carmakers to manufacture here in South Africa and benefit from preferential access to the US market under the American law called AGOA. To discuss we're joined by the Deputy Director General of Trade and Industry, Xolelwa Mlumbi, live from our studio in Pretoria. For more news, visit: sabcnews.com

Africa Imports: Wholesale Clothing, Fabrics, Beauty and More!
 
05:09
Africa Imports is the largest supplier of African products in the US. See listing and reviews @ http://bizzee.net/listings/africa-imports-wholesale-merchandise-imported-from-africa/ ...They supply over 2,000 wholesale customers with African clothing, artwork, musical instruments, jewelry, oils, soaps, and personal care products. The business was started in 1998. For the first year, the business was operated by the founder Wayne Kiltz, his family, and by one office person. Most of this period of time was spent learning about the market for African goods, and developing a base of reliable suppliers. Wayne Kiltz spent the first year traveling the US and Africa; visiting African stores; exhibiting goods in trade shows; and building a base of customers. During this period, we learned many things that help make an African business successful. Sources for the most popular products were established, and we worked with many of our customers to discover the best ways to sell African products: both for them and for us. In October of 1999, Africa Imports was relocated to 240 S Main St in South Hackensack, New Jersey because it is close to New York with its large base of African suppliers. Being in New Jersey allowed us to supply African products with much lower overhead costs than a warehouse in Manhattan. Today there are 15 people in their main office; and about 100 different people from Africa who travel back and forth with new products. We also estimate that there are over 1,000 different people in Africa who make the products in their own communities; and in their own way. Africa Imports began in August 1998. Some of our people have been involved with African goods and trade for even longer.

South Africa and Nigeria are key trading partners on the continent. Trade between the two countries grew from R174 million to R22 billion. Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan and his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma will discuss ways to boost trade between Africa's two biggest economies during talks in Cape Town this week The two countries GDP and Income Per Capita differs a lot. South Africa grew at a rate of 2.5; meanwhile Nigeria grew at a faster rate. SA's income per Capita exceeds that of Nigeria and this is partly due to population growth. According to the World Bank, Nigeria the leading Oil producer has a larger population than South Africa. Unemployment figures have increased in Nigeria, from 23.9% in 2011 from 21.0% in 2010 and South Africa was no different though lesser, but it increased. Though the two countries relations have improved, they none the less belong to different regional bodies. Jonathan will arrive in South Africa on Tuesday.

South Africa's Steel Export Declines Due to US Tariff
 
01:41
Threatened by a 25-percent tariff imposed by the U.S. on its steel export, South Africa's steel export to U.S. has declined since May, and the country's steel sector has been feeling the pinch. Affected by the steel tariff imposed by U.S., there has been a decline in the steel export of South Africa. Some industry insiders are concerned about the falling export and the negative impact on their business. Apart from the direct impact on the steel export, employment might be also impacted negatively. The local employment data in May and June have not been released yet, but the steel sector is valued at about 900 billion U.S. dollars annually, and has the potential to create thousands of jobs. Facing the current crisis, many steel companies in South Africa turn their eyes to Asian countries and other African countries to diversify their export destinations. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20180812/8087822.shtml#!language=1 Welcome to subscribe us on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsContent.CCTVPLUS Twitter: https://twitter.com/CCTV_Plus LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cctv-news-content Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cctvnewscontent/ Video on Demand: www.cctvplus.com If you are in demand of this video footage, please contact with our business development team via email: [email protected]

CHINA vs FRANCE: Battle for AFRICA? - VisualPolitik EN

Almost half of the African content used to be a French colony. Even today we can still feel the French influence on this part of the planet. French military is present in most of the African conflicts, if not all, and Paris has a strong grip on the Governments of the former colonies. Even the currency of more than 15 African countries is linked to the Euro and controlled by France. Nonetheless, despite this strong political sway, the economy is a totally different animal. After centuries of colonialism, African countries haven’t evolved. And China is the ultimate trade partner of most of the sub-Saharan countries. Yes, France is sending troops to Africa but China is sending businessmen. And they are getting a way better profit with it. In this video, we will talk about the French influence in Africa and this new political battle between China and France to take the biggest advantage of African emerging powers.

Learn German with the Goethe-Institut in Joburg!
 
02:15
www.goethe.de/joburg As a South African, you might be interested in global business. Or transport. Or science. Or tourism. Or travel. Or energy. Or technology. Or geopolitics. Or trade. And if you are, the chances are that you’ll be talking to German-speakers somewhere along the line. And there are good reasons for this: • 28 of the Fortune global 500 companies are listed in Germany* • Mercedes, BMW, Volkswagen, and Audi manufacture some of the world’s most desirable brands in South Africa, and German language skills can be a plus if you apply for a job there • More than 35.000 Germans visited South Africa in a single month of 2016 (February) - many of them as tourists** Siemens and SAP play an important role in the South African technology infrastructure • South Africa exported €477 million worth of goods to Germany during November 2015.* • Germany is one of South Africa’s largest trading partners, exporting goods worth almost $700 million during November 2015 to South Africa.** • South Africa has 11 universities and 80 schools that decided to offer German courses to their students Germany speaks to South Africans in a big way. Be part of the conversation. At the Goethe-Institut we know there are many reasons for adults wanting to learn a foreign language. Some people have relatives with whom they’d like to converse. Others want to get to know their roots better, or improve their careers. Some want to travel, and have dreams of fitting in knowledgeably with the customs and culture of the countries they visit. Some do it to widen their experience and improve their lives or give themselves the opportunity of reading a book in its original language. Some may simply have time on their hands, and want to try something new. We can’t determine your roots or your relatives, but when it comes to every other reason we can tell you that for your second language, you should choose German. Over 175 million people speak it, and over 15 million are learning it worldwide, so if you want to travel, it’s an automatic choice. If you love literature, what could be more satisfying than reading Goethe, Schiller, Heine, Kant and Hegel, or Nobel prize-winners like Günter Grass or Herta Müller exactly as they wrote? What about absorbing the culture that gave the world Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven, or immersing yourself in a movie by Wim Wenders or Rainer-Werner Fassbinder, or a play by Brecht? And if you just want to try something new, why not be practical and make the largest economy in Europe more accessible at the same time? And that brings us to some very practical reasons to choose to learn German. Apart from major global brands like BMW, Siemens and Deutsche Bank, there are many small and medium-sized enterprises that power the German economy. Around 450 of them are established in South Africa, helping to make Germany South Africa’s second largest trading partner. This level of co-operation and involvement bodes well for bilateral business relations, and represents the significant economic opportunities offered by German companies. And if you want to maximise these opportunities, imagine what speaking German could do for you. So why not choose German? With the Goethe-Institut there for you, it’s good to know you can. And if you can’t get to us at the Goethe-Institut to study, we’d be more than happy to put you in touch with a person or a place where you can. We also offer Blended Learning courses, which combine classroom and online learning. Only one physical classroom course a week is required, and our personal tutors will guide you through the rest of the learning process on our online platform.
