EMSP Group works globally across developing economies primarily within Africa, with a focus on the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the East African Community (EAC). Our main aim is to empower regional developing economies and growing markets through global integration and competitiveness, with the goal of increasing their competitive capabilities via access to international markets.
We provide specialist business development, trade, procurement, and operations management expertise. We consult with international, regional, and local companies on trade, expansion models and growth strategies that are suitable for their intended target markets. Due to our understanding of the region and our relationships with many (private and public sector / listed and unlisted) companies, we are also in a unique position to offer expert advice for international businesses wishing to invest or enter prospective/new markets.
We have great respect for the long-term success of our clients and understand that the road to successful results includes mutually beneficial relationships and connections. We offer expert knowledge of our regions and markets. This knowledge of local markets provides our clients with a social and economic context, as well as a business strategy tailored to their needs. We thrive on discovering new ways to ensure that our clients gain the maximum benefits from our expertise. Our objective is to determine the viability of each undertaking and to identify growth opportunities, providing our clients with value-added products and services.
At our core, we are driven by the need to break both inter- and intra-continental barriers, to provide the opportunity for ventures to move beyond structural barriers to access, and on to more beneficial and prosperous interconnected markets.
We can achieve this most effectively through our SADC- and EU-based locations, which enable us to support our customers in navigating the social, cultural, legal and economic barriers that exist in local markets.
By employing local expertise, we provide our clients with a unique insight into the context, culture, regulations, standards, labour laws and working practices in the countries where we work. This ensures that the services we offer are well-balanced and easily accessible, while respecting local cultures and sensitivities.
We have, and continue to build, an extensive Pan-African network. Our industry engagement within numerous sectors is continuously evolving across industries and affords us both a macro and micro perspective on the entire commodities pipeline.
At EMSP Group, we aim to be contributing agents of economic growth within the developing world. We’re redefining global business from a Southern and Eastern African perspective, and in the broader African context.
While facilitating trade and aiding in growth across the region, we aim to play our part in:
