Enter The 2017 KZN Exporter Of The Year Awards


The partnership between the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Transnet Port Terminals continues to grow as they will again host the 2017 KZN Exporter of the year awards. Now in their 17th year, the awards have grown progressively since their inception in 2000 with four additional categories introduced in 2016. The aim of these awards is to recognise and celebrate exporters in this province, while we stimulate the growth of our economy.

Each year, the programme culminates with the KZN Exporter of the Year Awards Banquet at which the winners are announced. The awards are an ideal showcase for emerging and established exporters of a wide range of goods and services. The ocean economy plays a crucial role in the development of Durban. KwaZulu-Natal being the second largest economic contributor to the South African economy. A large part of the KwaZulu-Natal economy is as a result of being host to the Durban Container Terminal, the largest container terminal in southern Africa, and Richards Bay Terminal.

The awards are also supported by other strategic partners such as the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs (edtea), Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal (TIKZN), Ethekwini Maritime Cluster (EMC), Small Enterprise Development Agency (SEDA) and the Export Credit Insurance Corporation (ECIC) to highlight exporters in KwaZulu-Natal.
