Latest economic trends that will affect your SME going forward
Economic trends and forecasts play a significant role in SME growth and will therefore either positively or negatively impact South African entrepreneurs. It is therefore imperative that all business owners are aware of the current economic environment and the issues that can possibly affect their businesses.
The 2012 Sanlam / Business Partners Entrepreneur of the Year® competition breakfast workshop, which aims to tackle some of these issues, will feature an address by Ulrich Joubert, an economist from Kruger International, who is also involved with the Bureau for Economic Research at the University of Stellenbosch. Joubert is a past chairman of the Johannesburg Afrikaanse Sakekamer, as well as the Economic Advisory Committee of the Afrikaanse Handelsinstituut. He is also the only economist who has won the Beeld economist of the year competition three times.
