Economic Empowerment
 

the dti provides strategic direction in the development of policies and strategies that promote enterprise growth, empowerment and equity in the economy.

Various initiatives have been undertaken to implement Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE), including the establishment of B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice; the development of Sector Charters in Forestry, Tourism, Construction and Transport; accreditation of B-BBEE Verification Agencies; and establishment of the B-BBEE Advisory Council. The focus has also been on developing co-operatives, which operate in the mainly informal and marginalised sector of the economy, as well as empowering women-owned businesses via the provision of financial and business development support services. These programmes involve continuous intergovernmental co-ordination and co-operation with government institutions.
