A record of six buyers/importers of a wide range of South African products teamed up with the Embassy to showcase the country’s like arts and crafts; Rooibos, wines; Ceres juice, biltong; boerewors; as well as other South African delicacies.  The Embassy occupied part of the colourfully branded stand to showcase freshly imported Proteas and it was no surprise when the local Mistress of Ceremonies made an announcement that the popular flowers were the first product to sell out, hours before the end of the Fair.  Ambassador Agnes Nyamande-Pitso presented a bouquet of Proteas to the Chairperson of the IBF and wife of the Philippines Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Gretchen Del Rosario during her visit to the booth accompanied by other committee members.

This fair is one of the Mission’s projects to brand South Africa and market various products in the Philippines.  The participation of the Mission has evolved over the years from importing/buying all products sold at the fair to imported only Proteas.

This fair is one of the major fundraising events by the Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs together with 50 diplomatic missions in support of underserved communities and victims of natural disasters in Metro Manila.  While the Mission does not have an Aid Programme, this fair gives an opportunity to contribute to charitable causes under the custodianship of the local Foreign Affairs.
