  • 25000 to 30000 businesspeople visit Angola from South Africa every year

  • They visit:

    • To maintain or develop business

    • To trade in goods or services

    • To invest in productive capacity

  • They represent:

    • Between 8000 and 10000 entities

    • South African entities and non-South African entities

  • Most either fail completely or spend too much time and or money in achieving success

  • Those that every yearsucceed:

  • Recognize the huge cross-cultural business diversity gap that exists from the outset:

    • Ease of Doing Business Index SA = 29 Angola = 156

    • Global Competitiveness Index SA = 45 Angola = 125

    • Networked Readiness Index SA = 47 Angola = 120

  • Strive to bridge the gap by:

    • Going far beyond the business environment research norm before they visit – seeking to be sufficiently well informed to bridge the gap

    • Consulting much wider than usual to strengthen their knowledge base and ability to manage the business risk effectively (government entities are very inhibited in this area)

    • Honing their Angola-specific solutions and skills with vigor (including language and governance)

    • Ensuring total compliance with both South African and Angolan Codes and Laws

    • Ensuring that their social accountability is in place and is working

  • Engage in business in good faith
