Marketing opportunity for SACCI members

Dear Member,

The U.S. Commercial Service has a program called Business Service Provider (BSP) in which will feature local service providers on our website. This new online Business Service Providers (BSP) directory will promote firms that assist international businesses and overseas investors.

The aim of BSP is to establish a database of diverse service providers in South Africa that anyone searching the internet in the United States or South Africa may find in one place. 

Once completed, the website would look similar to this  India Business Service Providers (  Upon finished, the page will be linked to our  South Africa ( landing page.

In addition to the foregoing, we are developing a South African Digital Commercial Guide that will supplement the Country Commercial Guide for South Africa (South Africa Country Commercial Guide ( in the form of a digital Magazine.

Why should your company be a part of this:

  • This allows your company to market its services not just to our South African clients but mainly to our U.S. clients as well
  • Your company will be listed our website International Trade Administration which is the primary point for U.S. firms wanting to expand their exports globally and may need local service providers to assist them with services that are beyond our scope.
  • The Digital Commercial Guide will be populated on our website, social media sites, companies in the United States, our clients, and stakeholders both local and international, and numerous U.S. Department of Commerce offices from various states in the United States will share the guide with their clients.
  • Our South African U.S. Commercial Service office, also assists U.S. clients to expand in Sub-Saharan Africa therefore the Digital Commercial Guide will be shared with our colleagues within the region who will populate it to their clients
  • Our website has a high number of visitors per month and these visitors will be able to view your company’s services

This is an excellent opportunity for your company to be mentioned as a resource for companies in the United States and South Africa. We share these suppliers at no cost to our clients, with the caveat that it is not an endorsement. 

The programs have a low annual subscription and below are the fees structures:

Service:Initial Annual fees:Annual Renewal fees:
Business Service Provider (BSP)$350$250
Digital Guide (DG)$450$350
Both BSP and DG$750$550

What you will get on the new BSP page dedicated to South Africa:

  • Your company logo, profile and contact information will be highlighted
  • You will increase your company’s visibility within the local and international business community
  • May improve your website SEO by connecting to and being connected from our .gov website

SACCI Membership Deliverables
Dear Members
The Board, Council and Management of the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) remains grateful for your steadfast commitment to the unity, order, development, promotion, and prosperity of the South African economy through your membership in SACCI. As South Africa’s most broadly representative organised business formation, SACCI continues to be the bedrock of the current and future interests of the private sector and broader economic actors in South Africa. Through our membership, we should continuously improve our relations as fellow members to ensure that we achieve significant tangible outcomes for both the unique priorities of each member and the collective interests of Corporate South Africa. We reiterate that SACCI continues to drive its work through the following Strategic Pillars.
❖ Inclusive economic growth & development.
❖ Constructive Public and Private Stakeholder engagements.
❖ Entrepreneurship.
❖ Infrastructure: (Facilities. Electricity. Rail. Road. Water. Connectivity).
❖ Regional and International partnerships.
❖ Revenue generation.
❖ Membership benefits and relations.
These Strategic Pillars were crafted carefully by the membership, taking into account the state of the South African economy, the strategic priorities of members and the aspiration to become a globally competitive economy.

As we evolve our membership relations, we wish to introduce the concept of “SACCI Membership Deliverables”, a bilateral bond between SACCI and its individual members to enforce the mutual commitment towards the implementation of the Strategic Pillars. These deliverables will be anchored by the interests of each member, in the context of our collectively shared strategic pillars.
Over the next two quarters, we will engage each member to source your corporate priorities and align them to one or more of the 7 pillars with the intention of creating your SACCI Membership Deliverables. We believe that this will enhance the value of your membership, allow us to aggregate corporate affairs resources, and have focussed engagements with stakeholders whose decisions and actions have a bearing on the wellbeing of our business interests. I am looking forward to meeting you in the near future to jointly develop your SACCI Membership Deliverables and improve your experience in the Chamber movement. Yours in organized business,
Adv Mtho Xulu
