Abstract:This research has been conducted with several objectives in mind: The first objective is to identify opportunities for Dutch companies in the South African wastewater market. The most promising market segments and specific opportunities have to be determined. Secondly, relevant support needs among Dutch companies should be identified. It has to become clear what current business experiences of the companies are and what could help them to enter the South African market or strengthen their market position. An elaboration on export promotion assistance is the third objective. Export promotion can be defined as public policy measures that actually or potentially enhance export activity, which in this case could be initiated by the Netherlands Embassy. The final objective is the identification and establishment of relationships with key persons and organizations involved in wastewater in South Africa in order to expand the network of the Embassy. These objectives have led to the formulation of the main research question: What are the opportunities for Dutch companies in the South African wastewater market and what type of support from the Embassy of the Netherlands can improve business activities of Dutch companies in South Africa?
