SA businesswomen off to US
Johannesburg - Minister for Women, Children and People with Disabilities, Lulu Xingwana will lead a group of South African businesswomen on a visit to the United States this weekend, her department said.
The visit was aimed at building beneficial partnerships between South African businesswomen and their American counterparts, spokesperson Cornelius Monama said in a statement on Thursday.
"The United States-South Africa Women’s Business Forum, which was launched on Women’s Day this year, is envisaged to serve as a business bridge that will benefit both the US and South African business entrepreneurs."
The forum would take place in Chicago from October 24 to 28. The focus would be on the role of women in international trade, doing business in South Africa, and employment of people with disabilities. October is Disability Awareness month in the United States.
