Welcome Automotive Export Industry Council

The Automotive Industry Export Council (AIEC) was established in 1999 as the official private sector export promotion body for the automotive industry in South Africa. Products addressed include passenger cars, trucks and buses, original equipment components, aftermarket parts and accessories.

The AIEC works closely with Trade and Investment South Africa (TISA), the trade promotion arm of the Department of Trade and Industry, in the following main activities:

  1. General promotion of South African automotive manufacturing capability
  2. Trade Missions of South African companies to potential export markets
  3. Investigations and research into new markets and additional opportunities in existing markets

Funding of the above activities is subsidised by TISA for approved projects and travel.

In addition, the AIEC assists members by providing information on a wide range of markets and export-related subjects through continually updated research and databases, as well as assisting with training programs. The costs of membership are nominal and provide substantial benefits.

The success of the AIEC is self-evident from the large and sustained growth in exports of automotive products from South Africa. You will find some of this in the general sections of this website, and much more in the members-only area. We invite you to explore, and then trust that you will be encouraged to join the AIEC!
