The South African Portuguese Chamber of Commerce (SAPCC) and Câmara de Comércio e Indústria Luso Sul-africana (CCILSA) have agreed to strengthen ties and work together in areas of common interests for the benefit of their respective members.

Newly elected President of CCILSA, Tim Vieira and local representatives met with the SAPCC board to establish agreement on collaboration between the two chambers. Communication and cooperation strategies will bring the two chambers closer and will expand and strengthen the deliverables offered to members and stakeholders. This is a big step forward in the process of building a stable and fruitful relationship between the chambers of commerce.

With SAPCC based in Johannesburg and CCILSA based in Lisbon, this collaboration unlocks the network and promotion of opportunities for the chambers’ respective members.

Manny Moutinho, director of SAPCC said, “We’re delighted to be collaborating with CCILSA. We are confident that this will strengthen the chambers and assist in our members’ global expansion and growth. In today’s ever-competitive environment, growing globally is not only a recommendation, it’s a necessity. That’s how businesses can make their organisation sustainable and durable.”
