With the support of USAID’s Southern Africa Trade Hub, a new hybrid maize seed well-suited to Swaziland’s farming community was introduced into the country in September 2015, demonstrating the progress that Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) Member States have made harmonizing and modernizing their seed sectors.
The Trade Hub supported seven apparel companies from Botswana and Lesotho to participate in MAGIC, the largest fashion trade show in the world, in Las Vegas from February 17-19. The companies met major buyers, large retailers, and importers for the US market such as Target, Ralph Lauren, the Perry Ellis Group, Teamwork, Happy Chef, and Sanmar.
