Interjobs on economy travel in Africa
Sebastian Kurz, Federal Minister for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs, and Christoph Leitl, President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, undertook a business trip to South Africa and Kenya from the 24th to the 26th October. They were accompanied by 25 leading Austrian export entrepreneurs. These included Interjobs’ managing director Bruno Steiner, who successfully represented our company.
The high point of this trip was the Business Forum in Johannesburg.
This featured around 150 Austrian and South African representatives from business and politics.
The Foreign Trade Offices in South Africa and Kenya had established contacts with promising business partners for Interjobs and Bruno Steiner was able to hold discussions with several potential customers. He also used this unique opportunity to meet several long-established partners.
South Africa is Austria’s most important trading partner and investment location in Africa. Kenya has the largest economy in eastern Africa. The Austrian business sector is keen to foster African development through cooperation and professional training. In this way, people in Africa are offered prospects and the means of existence.
As well as discussing business, the participants in the trip were also offered wonderful hospitality including superb cuisine and entertainment.
This meant that Bruno Steiner was able to return from this short yet eventful trip having enjoyed a host of new experiences and cultural impressions.
