Business as a National Asset

#BusinessBelieves a thriving business sector is essential for addressing the country’s challenges. South Africa has no future without strong, successful and growing businesses. BLSA is spearheading efforts to build a national consensus on the importance of businesses in society and the vital contribution they make.

The private sector is crucial to the socio-economic development of any nation. Since 1993, the private sector has created more than 2.65 million jobs, and we pledge to create more. Our role is critical to creating jobs, market growth, community initiatives and investment, to ensure all in society have the opportunity to grow and prosper.

BLSA pledges to work with labour, faith-based organisations, civil society, leaders young and old – in fact, anyone who shares these values – to ensure that the South Africa of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela’s dream, where everyone prospers, becomes a reality.
