Our Mission

Business council promoting business between New Zealand and Southern Africa


The South African New Zealand Business Council is a collaborative non-governmental organisation of over 70 New Zealand corporations and individuals doing business with Southern Africa. Our Mission is to serve as a forum for the development and promotion of policies with Southern African nations as well as foster local business relations with all local South African run businesses in New Zealand to promote local business and networking to increase sales and profile to other likeminded businessmen.

The New Zealand Southern African Business council meet once a month to discuss how to promote local trade and fast track new and developing businesses by mentoring and worthwhile training sessions. One of the key duties is to promote New Zealand as a desirable place to live, invest, start businesses and encourage exports to Southern Africa. To contact any one of the committee members please e-mail Peter Woodberg at
