Chambers of Commerce


South African Chambers of Commerce

Business Unity of South Africa is the result of a merger between Business SA (BSA) and the Black Business Council (BBC). BSA represents about 19 business organisations and sector-specific bodies, while the BBC represents Nafcoc, Fabcos, the Congress of Business and Economics, the Black Management Forum, the National Black Business Caucus, the Association for the Advancement of Black Accountants of Southern Africa, the Association of Black Securities and Investment Professionals and the Black Information Technology Forum.

Nedlac's work is conducted in four chambers which discuss different aspects of social and economic policy. These are the Labour Market Chamber, the Trade and Industry Chamber, the Development Chamber and the Public Finance and Monetary Policy Chamber. Sub-committees and task groups of the Chambers are formed to deal with specific issues. The chambers report to a Management Committee, which oversees the work programme and administrative issues.
