This trade mission will be anchored in South Africa with each participant able to select the second market based on specific business opportunities and needs. Additional markets include Angola, Botswana, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania and Ghana. U.S. trade to and from Africa tripled in the last decade. After nearly two decades of strong growth, overall growth did slow in 2016 but certain markets continue to grow robustly. Participating Iowa companies will have one-on-one pre-qualified appointments whether they are seeking to develop or expand direct export sales, locate distributors or agents, conduct market research or have other goals.  Contact Peggy Kerr to discuss your interests in the market and the mission. Mission details and application information will be available at
