Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment
Government has embarked on a comprehensive programme to provide a legislative framework for the transformation of South Africa’s economy. In 2003, the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Strategy was published as a precursor to the B-BBEE Act, No. 53 of 2003. The fundamental objective of the Act is to advance economic transformation and enhance the economic participation of black people in the South African economy. The application of the act has found new momentum from December 2011 as Government now acknowledges the B-BBEE status of a supplier whereas black ownership was previously the main criteria.
