South Africa is for Bavaria one of the most important business partners and as a G20 member an important location in the region. For Bavarian companies, South Africa offers numerous points of contact in areas such as mechanical engineering, energy and environmental technology or digitization. Due to the high number of global political uncertainties such as the Brexit or the unclear attitude of the USA, a wide range of export areas is important. Great Britain and the US remain as important trading partners, but economic relations with other regions such as Africa or Asia should be further developed.
