March 9, 2018

Meet with South African officials to find out how your U.S. dollar can get more bang for the Rand as members of Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal meet with interested parties in New York, Houston, and Los Angeles.  News of the business opportunities comes from Claude Pretorius, who made a very informative and impressive presentation during the opening Business Development Day of the inaugural Essence Magazine Durban Festival November 2016.  San Francisco entreprenuer and film producer for LA based filmmaker Damon Jamal's "Sankofa...Connecting the Dots," Roland Washington sponsored Jackie Wright of Wright Enterprises to be a member of the historic CA Durban Trade Mission during the U.S based Essence Magazine Durban Festival. (Sankofa...Connecting the Dots" chronicles the Essence Durban Festival and why it doing business in South Africa is good for the bottomline and spirit.)
