South Africa international trade in cultural products A focus on trade with the EU in a comparative regional setting -This report forms one chapter of the SACO 2020 CCI Mapping Study. The main goal was to analyse the structure and performance of South Africa’s cultural goods trade with the European Union (EU) for the period from 2010 to 2018, with comparisons to trade with BRICS and the rest of Africa. The choice of the EU as the focus for this report is because, along with the rest of BRICS, Africa and North American Free Trade Area (NAFTA) countries, the EU is one of South Africa’s most important cultural trading partners.
