Abstract

This study suggests that there will be entrepreneurial business opportunities that will stem from the current trade imbalance between South Africa and Finland and that South African entrepreneurs can benefit economically from this trade imbalance. The objective was to determine these opportunities. Results indicate that a trade imbalance per se does not attest that opportunities for entrepreneurs exist, but rather the economic and political support because of the size of the trade imbalance. This study's conclusions indicate that coal, optical fibre, processed food, and wine are growing exports (from South Africa) and that aluminium, cereal, flour, logs poles, medicaments in dosage, nickel mats, organic chemicals, and unwrought nickel are growing imports from the world (into Finland) that the entrepreneur could possibly supply:

Further studies could be done on why the Swedish imports larger quantities from South Africa than the other Scandinavian countries as well as, the types of medication that the Finnish demands from the international community and which South Africa can supply in particular.
