The Department of Small Business Development (DSBD) and its agencies, the Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda) and the Small Enterprise Finance Agency (sefa) will conduct SMME Roadshow. The development and support of SMMEs are critical for economic recovery and job creation. SMMEs are the key drivers for job creation, therefore unlocking value chains for the benefit of small businesses remains critical in recovering an economy that has lost over a million jobs because of the pandemic. Minister for Small Business Development, Ms Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams will lead the countrywide roadshows themed: “unlocking opportunities for SMMEs and Co-operatives for economic growth and job creation”.

The purpose of the roadshow is to showcase the work of the DSBD, its agencies and other strategic government departments involved in the development of SMMEs, monitor the support and impact on SMMEs through the interventions by the government, share challenges and listen to success stories of entrepreneurs in various districts across the country to improve government support and to better coordinate support for SMMEs through partnerships with the private sector and various departments and agencies. The DSBD will also use the partnership dialogue to engage with different stakeholders from different sectors on the National Integrated Small Enterprise Development (NISED) Master Plan.

The DSBD is committed to driving its core mandate which is “to lead and coordinate an integrated approach to the promotion and development of entrepreneurship, Small, Micro and Medium Enterprises (SMMEs) and Co-operatives, and to ensure an enabling legislative and policy environment to support their growth and sustainability”. These ministerial roadshows are critical in driving this mandate of DSBD, by ensuring that there is a seamless engagement across all spheres of government on the direction of the Department of Small Business Development and its entities.

Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams and Deputy Minister Sidumo Dlamini will lead the countrywide roadshows.
