The Western Cape is uniquely positioned as the gateway to the rest of Africa. Working closely with our Research Unit, Wesgro’s Investment and Promotion Unit paves the way for companies seeking to invest in the Western Cape.

The unit focuses on attracting investment, promoting the region as an investment destination, and supporting businesses in maintaining and expanding their business operations here.

We build strategic relationships with – and connect – industry players, government authorities and the business community, and offer access to our networks, joint ventures, partnerships and supplier databases to enhance matchmaking opportunities.

Our facilitation services include offering guidance and leading discussions with clients and service providers in various areas, including agri-processing, oil and gas, manufacturing, renewable energy, hotel and real estate development, and information and communications technology.

We use our network of existing relationships and in-depth research to identify dynamic players in the market and build compelling business cases for organisations wanting to invest in the Western Cape.

We create tailor-made investment proposals to stimulate potential investment in the region and offer a one-stop business development management service for international and local investors wanting to establish or expand their operations in the province.

Wesgro is also the first point of contact for foreign buyers, local exporters and investors seeking to take advantage of the Western Cape’s business potential.
