The Western Cape MEC of Economic Opportunities will be signing a strategic agreement with the American state of Georgia in trying to boost trade.

MEC Winde said the agricultural sector in the province accounts for 23 percent of the country’s agriculture GDP and tourism also a major economic drive for the province. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Bronwynne Jooste said Minister Winde and Minister Meyer will be signing a strategic agreement with Georgia with hope of improving cooperation between Western Cape and Georgia.

Jooste said this agreement will focus on our biggest growth industry here in the Western Cape as this includes tourism and agriculture. Over the past ten years the U.S has lead foreign direct investment projects into the Western Cape worth more than R19 Billion.

“We hope this visit will unlock even more economic growth and job opportunities for both the Western Cape and United States of America Jooste added.
