What to expect soon

SACCI describes how 2012 was a tough one for business and what 2013 will bring

SACCI has comments on a variety of business-related areas

The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) has for many years been the voice for business in South Africa and in the coming edition it goes into great detail about a variety of issues around business in the country.

While South Africa experienced a rough road in business last year, with Europe being one of SA's biggest trading partners under sever pressure to get itself back on track, and locally the tragedy of the Marikana strikes and further transport strikes, South African business took a beating. Add to this the currency weakening and inflation increasing, though for the time being looks likely to remain stable. No interest hikes during 2013 is good news for business!

Furthermore, SACCI comments on the revised BBBEE Codes of Good Practice, and is in the process of commenting on Transnet National Ports Authority's Tariff Application, which is similar to Eskom's electicity application, not to mention SACCI's number of surveys on labour regulations, industrial action, late payments by goverment and black economic empowerment and business conditions. All of which will reveal telling points of interest for South African business.

SACCI will also reveal its thoughts on the business outlook ahead and what areas it shall be focusing on for 2013.
