What we do

BLSA works on behalf of its members to formulate and express views on macro-economic and other issues of national interest, while promoting, domestically and internationally, the interests and growth of South Africa’s private sector.

BLSA aims to create a conducive environment for the private sector, with the highest ethical standards, through initiatives that are underpinned by the belief that sound/proven economic management, fiscal, monetary, manufacturing, and trade policies are fundamental for a successful South Africa.

As an organisation we focus on three core activities

Advancing a modern, inclusive and growing economy

Upholding the constitution and protecting the integrity of the state institutions

Demonstrating that business is a national asset and is central in addressing poverty, unemployment, economic injustice, and transformation.
