Radebe to address builders’ congress

Aug 12 2016 14:45

Cape Town - The 2016 annual Master Builders Congress will be taking place from August 31 to September 2 at the Durban International Convention Centre.

Now in its 111th year, the annual congress is the gathering for building contractors, construction and project managers, built environment professionals, government officials, financial institutions, manufacturers and building industry suppliers from all over South Africa.

Under this year's theme of "building South Africa together", the congress will provide an opportunity for all role-players to congregate and discuss the latest trends, opportunities and challenges facing the building industry.

Kicking off the congress will be Minister in the Presidency for Planning, Performance, Monitoring, Evaluation and Administration Jeff Radebe, who will deliver the keynote address. The topic will be "building the South African economy through infrastructure development".

The topic will be unpacked further during a panel discussion. The first day of the congress will feature breakaway sessions where a variety of pressing industry issues will be discussed by panels comprised of members from different industry spheres.

On the second day Thabo Masombuka, CEO of the Construction Sector Charter Council, will pose the question of "the journey towards a transformed construction sector".

This will be followed by presentations on the CETA Sector Skills Plan for the construction industry and how to combat corruption in the construction industry.
