The Minister of Small Business Development, Ms Lindiwe Zulu, will host a Women Imbizo in Bela Bela, Limpopo on Friday, 10 April 2015. The Imbizo programme will take place under the government’s five year theme: “Together we move South Africa forward”.
About 250 women, representing women’s organisations and people with disabilities, will participate in dialogue with the Minister. The focus will be on women economic empowerment. Minister Zulu remains concerned that small businesses have an exceedingly high failure rate, and that the majority of casualties are black and women-owned. It is through the Imbizo programme, among others, that government hopes that practical ideas will emerge on how to reverse this trend.
Minister Zulu will engage women around the plight, opportunities and challenges facing women in co-operatives and small businesses. More importantly, the Imbizo will seek to communicate available opportunities and support for women co-operatives and businesses.
Members of the media are invited to attend the Imbizo as follows:
