The management of the Plastic Waste Recycling & Manufacturing Company have deeply expressed their disappointment in the actions of their abroad consulate to refuse a visa of entry to their new representative in Nigeria (Deep Towers). The company have been seeking ways to expand their marketing and sales of various products made from 100% recycled plastic into the West African region, but their consulate in Nigeria is absolutely determined to stand as a hurdle and delay the expansion into the new market. However, to remain focused on the mission of their business plan to achieve the entrace into the west African market, the consultant of the company just informed me that they'll be sending free samples of some of their products to Lagos (Nigeria) in two weeks time, to aid more advanced marketing activities, prior to the first full shipment expected in the coming months.
The refusal of the South African consulate to issue me a 9 days visa to visit my new business counterparts in Alberton this July, has put a new twist in terms of the priority of this campaign.
The proposed visit was supposed to further the progress of all companies involved in the area of business growth and expansion.
The consulate, maybe not fully aware that his country, South Africa, has just entered into economic recession. And above all things, what they need now is to encourage their companies at home to increase their exportation of products to overseas market. But in this case, the consulate sitting here at their embassy in Nigeria is busy doing the opposite thing, denying me a visa that was meant to take me to their country, and in return open ways for My Waste Product company in South Africa to start exporting their manufactured goods into Nigeria.
