Retail: Joburg consults informal traders

Comment on this story

EVERYONE involved in talks about informal trading in the Johannesburg city centre had concerns about the current situation, the city said yesterday. While the city was pleased with participation in the past two weeks, it had not been all smooth sailing, economic development mayoral committee member Rudy Mathang said.

The city had concluded its first phase of consultations and would start more focused discussions with informal traders in terms of the Businesses Act of 1991, he said. – Sapa
