In the course of the discussions, it was proposed that a business forum be organized so as to facilitate networking and sharing of information within the business communities.
It was also highlighted that the MCCI and the South African private sector organisations, being members of the Association of SADC Chambers of Commerce and Industry, of the SADC Business Council and of the Indian Ocean Rim Business Forum, are already collaborating on a number of projects at regional level.
