DURBAN – The Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) held their annual gala dinner on the newly launched MSC Musica cruise ship.
The event which was held in partnership with the Chamber's platinum sponsor the Mediterranean Shipping Company had important people from the business community and government in attendance.
The President of the DCCI Musa Makhunga highlighted the importance of government and business working with communities in South Africain to build a shared future.
According to Makhunga, small, medium and micro-sized enterprises (SMMEs) make up 90 percent of the businesses in sub-Saharan Africa and some of the challenges that they face include a lack of attention from the government.
"The plea is that we create an environment for the SMME sector that is supportive like the Special Economic Zones."
