September marks the annual Heritage Month in South Africa. The theme for this year’s Heritage Month is ‘Reclaiming, restoring and celebrating our living heritage’. September is indeed a month of celebrations in South Africa because people are also celebrating Tourism Month.

This year’s South African Open day “Discover South Africa event” is very important for the celebration of the Heritage Month, and it was held by Embassy of South Africa from 7th to 8th September in Beijing. The key focus of the event was to provide a platform for importers of South African food and beverage products to showcase these products to Chinese guests. The event also provided an opportunity to showcase South African Culture and music.
