Informal enterprises in the Eastern Cape

Sub Title :
Category : Research
Publish Date : 31 Aug 2020
It is clear that informal enterprises play a major and increasing part in our provincial economy, both in terms of employment and poverty alleviation. Informal enterprise activity, although dependent on formal sector purchasing power, has its own vibrant dynamic. It is also clear that Government must support both formal and informal enterprises. Our provincial investment promotion efforts are coming together into a concerted programme that should increase private formal business investment in our province. We need a similar concerted effort to support the informal and small business sector, which envisions and realises the role of the informal sector in the provincial and regional growth processes. A new generation of informal entrepreneurs is emerging and there seems to be significant enterprise growth and transition from the informal to the formal sectors. Successful informal enterprises build the formal economy from the bottom up

ECPG to finalise and formally submit to national government on future cannabis laws and regulations (see suggestions in section 5 ). There is some urgency in this as the new legal and regulatory framework is now being actively worked on, and according to SONA should be finalized soon. 2. ECPG (DRDAR and ECSECC) to have discussions with the DTI service providers doing the Cannabis Sector Master Plan (due for completion late this year). It is noted that the TOR for the master plan include making recommendations on the legal and regulatory framework. 3. Work should continue on developing a provincial cannabis sector master plan.

Future growth and prosperity of the province will be dependent on the lived experiences and actions of young people today.
