The National African Federated Chamber of Commerce (NAFCOC), will hosts its annual conference and annual general meeting at the International Convention Centre in Durban, from the 3rd to the 5th of October 2007.
“This is a continuation of the theme launched at NAFCOC’s AGM in 2005, to create 100 000 SMMEs each year,” says NAFCOC’s first female president and former secretary general, Buhle Mthethwa.
Mthethwa explains that she will be focusing their resources on different strategic interventions that will bear real results and deliver value for their members.
“We remain committed and focused on the economy’s imperative to create employment through SMME development, and this goal can be accomplished by increasing the number of enterprises,” says Mthethwa.
The theme of the conference is “unleashing the power of entrepreneurship through co-operatives and SMMEs”.
