Cape Town - China should use the Western Cape as an investment gateway into Africa, the provincial agriculture and rural development department said on Wednesday.

Western Cape MEC Gerrit van Rensburg made this invitation to Chinese commerce officials in Beijing on Tuesday, while on a visit to stimulate trade and investment.

Van Rensburg said wine exports from South Africa to China increased by 34% between 2009 and 2012.

He invited Cao Jiachan, the deputy director general for West Asia and Africa commerce, to attend a wine tasting to be hosted by the department in Beijing later this month.

The provincial government would also support a South African wine delegation at the annual Yantai International Wine Exposition in China from July 5.

Van Rensburg said government support of promotional activities and maintaining relationships with government departments was crucial for sustained export growth to China.
