Doing business in Africa comes with its own set of unique characteristics and we are perfectly positioned to help. We are the largest provider of professional services in Africa, with offices in more than 30 countries, around 9,000 members of staff, covering the Anglophone, Francophone and Lusophone speaking regions of Africa. Our network of firms in Africa collaborate with PwC in the UK and the wider global network to support the growth in trade activity between Africa and the rest of the world. Our ability to serve our clients across the continent and the range of our skills allow us to bring added value to all our clients, operating or entering into Africa.  PwC is actively involved in building relationships in and serving the increasingly interlinked UK African Financial services sector, and has a team of experienced professionals dedicated to serving our growing client base.

The SA Chamber is an umbrella organisation and conduit for trade, community and investment into and out of South Africa. It aims to bring under one concerted effort, a forum and meeting point for businesses who have an interest in both the UK and South Africa in an attempt to facilitate the development of business opportunities.
