“The Western Cape Government is working with local businesses like Silulo Ulutho Technologies, Thokozani Wines and Phoenix Marine. 

We’re helping businesses and exporters with our Ease of Doing Business Unit, Digital Economy Unit and initiatives like Wesgro’s export advancement programme.

We’re supporting them, because their business is ours, too.

If your business needs any assistance from unblocking bottlenecks to support on your expansion journey, the resources below represent a good place to start.

We are ready to assist you because your business, is our business.”
