Catalysts to stimulate the economy in the Western Cape will be the main focus of the AHI Western Cape's annual congress on September 5 and 6 in Velddrif.

The event is hosted by the Velddrif Business Chamber at the Riviera Hotel in Velddrif.

The aim of the congress is to see how to ensure sustainable economic growth. More than 5 000 businesses of nearly 50 regional business chambers are members of the AHI Western Cape.

Dr Willie Cilliers, AHI Western Cape CEO, says the congress speakers are industry experts who will share their valuable experience with the audience.

Cornie Swart, president of Agri Western Cape, will speak on agriculture as an economic catalyst and Monika de Jager, manager of the Namaqua West Coast Tourism, will lead the discussion on tourism as an economic catalyst.
