Black business calls for SMME ministry

Oct 11 2012 09:08

Johannesburg - Black Business Council (BBC) president Ndaba Ntsele on Thursday called for a ministry for small, medium, and micro enterprises (SMME).

The BBC was planning to take this proposal for discussion to Luthuli House, the ANC's head office in Johannesburg, Ntsele said at a BBC summit in Midrand.

He said most developing economies, such as Brazil, had an SMME ministry which supported entrepreneurship and SMME sustainability.
