The WCBDC presented an overview of the start-up, subscription and SMEDP programmes as well as corporate business opportunities and local BEE spending analysis, as determined by a survey done by Maxwell Malan in 2004. Discussions centered on the joint responsibility of corporate companies and the WCBDC to develop BEE SMEs in the West Coast Region. Corporate Companies responded positively and we hope that we will have their continued support.
Namakwa Sands presented a contract to Mr. LW Johannes of the Bergrivier Gestremdes.
Thank you once again to Namakwa Sands for sponsoring the meeting, reiterating their commitment to local development.
