Twenty companies from South Africa will represent the clothing, art and craft, beverages, jewellery, ceramics, hair and skin products, household and office products industries, among others.

There will also be a mini fun day today. South Africa Week closes with a cocktail reception at the Pegasus on Thursday evening.
