These two bodies have since 2012 been involved in several activities such as workshops, seminars, trade trips, exhibitions, trade fair outings, business facilitation and trade promotions. The main objective of the group is to ease the conduct of business across the two countries. Many of our activities which also involve traders, have been geared towards this main objective. We would therefore like to pledge our support for the setup of the government backed councils and would want to be actively involved in the current solution process developed to resolve the current impasse”.
