Since the launch of SACANCHAM in June 2017 by the Patron, HE Sandra McCardell, High Commissioner, Canada, the Chamber has built an enviable reputation for arranging high-quality workshops and events that inform and often challenge attendees, in addition to offering quality networking sessions. Regular liaison and reciprocal visits with other international Chambers including Australia, Switzerland, Turkey, Nigeria and the UK offer our members wider business opportunities.

SACANCHAM continues to support the Chamber’s Mission Statement, namely ‘To attract an influential network of leading businesses that create value in a sustainable manner.’
