Regional chamber of commerce makes headway

SELEBI-PHIKWE: The newly-registered regional chamber of commerce is continuing to receive positive response from the SPEDU region villages where it is mobilising the business community.

The establishment of the chamber of commerce has also contributed immensely in changing the business community’s perception towards SPEDU as evidenced by their response to the recent SPEDU engagement with stakeholders here.

The regional chamber of commerce was officially registered in February this year under the name ‘Regional Business Voice Association’ and it is the first to be registered around the country. It comprises constituencies that fall within the SPEDU region. Currently, the association is run by a volunteer interim committee that is now involved in mobilising the business community around the villages. The business community will then be categorised according to their sectors. Each sector will then appoint a leadership. Chairpersons from all the 10 sectors will then constitute the body of the chamber and elect the association president.
