Small business must be the driver of the economy providing growth and jobs
Let me express my appreciation for your kind invitation to this prestigious occasion. I wish to congratulate the leadership of NAFCOC on the attainment of this landmark achievement, the celebration of the 50th Anniversary. Even though Former President and stalwarts Dr Motsuenyane, Maponya and others are not physically present with us, we know they are with us in spirit. We understand that their mature age they need not physically attend but this conference has their blessings.
Leading the fight against poverty and hunger
The commemoration of the World Food Day was a reminder of the extent of poverty and extreme hunger in our world in general and Eastern Cape in particular.

In its group goals, titled, end extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity, the World Bank said although poverty has declined rapidly over the past three decades, humanity still faces urgent and complex challenges.
