【Seminar】DFIs: Your Partners for African Development – The 5th Seminar Republic of South Africa: Export Credit Insurance Corporation(ECIC)

Up to the 4th webinar, we have introduced DFIs of SADC-DFRC based on MOU between SADC-DFRC and AFRECO. During this period, we explained that Japanese corporations should consider applying for the financial support from DFIs toward the collaborative project with  South African corporations, for example. By doing so, it is getting obvious that we should also provide the information about ECA (like NEXI in Japan https://www.nexi.go.jp/); therefor, we introduce Export Credit Insurance Corporation (ECIC https://www.ecic.co.za) this time as a special edition of the series.

We welcome those who are doing business in Africa as a company or an individual, as well as those who are considering to enter the African market in the future.
