City adds another platform for business to engage

Home Government & Municipal City adds another platform for business to engage

DESPITE the crises faced by the eThekwini Metro, the business community’s commitment to both the City and its residents must be applauded, eThekwini Mayor, Mxolisi Kaunda said at an event attended by business leaders and which aimed to address business concerns that have impacted operations within the City.

“In line with fostering proactive dialogue, the City has established several platforms to engage with organised business entities. These platforms encompass the eThekwini Economic Council, the CEOs Forum, the KZN Growth Coalition 8-Aside, and a newly formed committee of technical experts from both the City and the business sector,” said Kaunda.

He said this technical infrastructure committee focuses its efforts on tackling crucial infrastructure challenges relating to water, roads, and electricity. This is done with the aim of further enhancing the City’s growth, service delivery, and major investment projects, he added.

The event, co-hosted by the City and the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition and the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry, was also an opportunity for the eThekwini Mayor to engage in meaningful discussions with the Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition Ebrahim Patel.
