Black Economic Empowerment: 20 years on, A reflection on the Strengths and Weaknesses of such a Policy | #eBizInsights| Chris Blair



Apartheid may have ended in the 90’s, but its legacy looms large over every South African, and many Africans as well.Chbe4

Many of the core issues that the new ANC government have begun to adress still plague this amazing country. Perhaps the furthest reaching and widespread is Poverty and the lack of real economic oppurtunities many face just because they are born black or in a rural/poor are, often times all 3 reasons may apply.

To help counter this legacy, government instituted a programme called BEE (Black Economic Empowerment) to help rebalance the racial makeup of the South African economy and include more females and non-whites into the corporate environment as well as spurring on the growth of black owned SME’s.

On this edition of eBizInsights we chat again to Chris Blair of 21stCentury about the Failings and Successes of BEE and now BBBEE (Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment) over the last 20 years.be1
