Session is designed to engage with Civil society. Civil society faces same challenges as businesses and SMMEs

Strategy Pillar

  • Industrialization as champion of economic transformation
  • Competitiveness
    • Example: Takes 3 days to register a company in Rwanda. In other SADC countries, it takes 30 days or more
  • Regional Integration

3.Q&A

  • COMESA has instituted simplified trade regime. How far is SADC in doing the same?
    • This is ongoing but details not available
  •  What is the thinking around feeding into global value chains for leather industry?
  • SADC countries not equitably resourced so would this not disadvantage participants if the member countries are to be relied on to fund initiatives?
    • There is a Regional development fund that is being worked on
      • Private sector needs to come to the party
  • What is the status of countries who do not appear in the Value chains?
    • Inquiries to be directed to SADC Secretariat
  • Tool kit for implementation
    • This will be taken into account and taken on board
