Established in 1952 the Southern African-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SAGCC) is the oldest and largest bi-lateral chamber representing over 600 members and stakeholders throughout South Africa, the SADC region, Germany and Switzerland.

Through the years the SAGCC has played a vital role in facilitating the establishment of business links between southern Africa and Germany. With offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Maputo (Mozambique office since 2014) and Lusaka the SAGCC supports the economic relations between South Africa, the other members of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and Germany by supplying information on the economic situation in these countries, bringing together potential trade partners, and offering a wide range of other essential services.

The SAGCC is part of the global Chamber network, which is represented by 140 offices in 92 countries.
