In June, the South African Business Council (SABCO) achieved a significant milestone in its mission to promote impactful collaboration between government bodies and businesses of all sizes. The expansion of the Business to Business (B2B) networking event brought together a diverse range of stakeholders, providing a fertile ground for meaningful dialogue and mutual growth. This year’s event showcased the power of collaboration as SMEs, large corporations, and government entities engaged in discussions, panels, and networking sessions.
The diverse participation underscored SABCO’s dedication to fostering a thriving business ecosystem that facilitates connections and opportunities. A noteworthy highlight of the B2B networking event was the interaction with representatives from the Mauritius Economic Development Group, as part of its exploration into cross-border economic development programmes.
This engagement marked a significant step towards expanding SABCO’s networking reach beyond South Africa’s borders, introducing businesses to emerging markets and novel prospects.
The discussions ignited during this meeting have sparked insightful conversations about the economic potential and opportunities presented by cross-border collaborations.
It has laid the foundation for future initiatives, highlighting the transformative impact of international connections in driving economic growth, fostering innovation, and expanding market access for our businesses. SABCO is thrilled to build upon these initiatives, strengthening its relationships with economic development groups worldwide and continuously expanding its network.
The council continues to innovate and explore new frontiers and the success of the expanded B2B networking event serves as a testament to SABCO’s unwavering commitment to empower member businesses.
