The KZN Business Seminar is part of the dtic‘s ongoing campaign to promote entrepreneurship and business development in South Africa.
The seminar will be administered in the form of an information-sharing session, where the dtic and representatives of its agencies will engage with the youth and Small, Micro and Medium Enterprises (SMMEs) on how to register companies and secure funding for running businesses, amongst others. – SAnews.gov.za
