Cape Town – The Black Business Council (BBC) on Monday announced the termination of its co-operation with Business Unity SA (Busa), following more than 23 years of partnership and dialogue between white and black business at the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac).

BBC said the termination followed an “unfortunate incident” at the Nedlac infrastructure committee meeting on Thursday, where its representatives were kicked out of the meeting, allegedly by the Busa delegation.

Danisa Baloyi, president of the BBC, said black and white business had worked tirelessly to achieve a consensus on matters pertaining to the successes of business, even when they were representing different constituents.

Baloyi said since the top priority for all Nedlac stakeholders was to improve the capacity of black business and ensure their participation in the shaping of the country’s economic landscape, the BBC would continue to participate in the platform.
