The SA-NCC was launched in May 2005 in Sandton, Johannesburg, at a prestigious event attended by more than 150 business-people, diplomats and media.
The SA-NCC is a non-profit organization created for the promotion, facilitation and assistance of Nigeria-related business. Our network is a unique reservoir of Nigeria-related business knowledge and practical advice.
Nigeria has a fast-growing economy, and is a country rich in natural resources but has also proved to be one of the most challenging countries in Africa in which to conduct business. The Chamber assists South African businesses to access the Nigerian market, helping them to understand and adapt to Nigeria's rules and culture. The Chamber is a unique reservoir of Nigeria-related business knowledge and practical advice.
What is the purpose of the SA-NCC?
The chamber holds regular networking events, mostly breakfast meetings addressed by experts on the country both from South Africa and Nigeria. Topics typically include details of doing business in Nigeria, political and economic overviews, a look at business opportunities and risk management strategies. Members receive preferential rates to our events and timely notification of other events that may be of interest.
We have established relationships with the South African High Commission and Consulate in Lagos and the Nigerian missions in South Africa to help facilitate this relationship.
Other benefits include:
The Chamber also plays a role behind the scenes to address the misperceptions about each other’s countries, working with diplomatic missions and government officials to iron out problems in the relationship.
