The Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic) will host a Business Seminar in Kuruman, in the Ga-Segonyana Local Municipality, Northern Cape on Friday, 21 April 2023.
The Kuruman Business Seminar is part of the dtic‘s ongoing campaign to promote entrepreneurship and business development in South Africa. The seminar will be administered in the form of an information-sharing session, where the dtic and representatives of its agencies will engage with the youth and Small, Micro and Medium Enterprises (SMMEs) on how to register companies and securing funding for running businesses, amongst others.
The Deputy Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition, Ms Nomalungelo Gina has reiterated the dtic’s commitment to supporting entrepreneurs, and in particular the small businesses in South Africa.
“These series of izimbizo outreaches to our people provide us with an apportunity to share important information with communities on the ground, about the work we are, and have been doing. In the process, strategic guidance for businesses on how to access our incentives through our own agencies is done. Through initiatives such as the Kuruman Business Seminar, we are providing young people with the tools and resources they need to succeed in business and contribute to the Northern Cape’s economic growth,” says Gina.
The seminar is open to young people interested in entrepreneurship and business development. It will feature expert speakers, interactive sessions, networking opportunities and exhibition by government agencies.
“We are excited to take our imbizo to the Ga-Segonyana Local Municipality. This is a mining-dominated district with businesses that are part of the minerals ecosystem, including SMMEs. We need to interact with them and the department can play a crucial role in helping the growth of these companies,” adds Gina.
