Busa2Business Report reports that Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) has congratulated South African Breweries’ (SAB's) entrepreneurship campaign aimed at enabling SA entrepreneurs to create 10,000 jobs by 2021.  

While not referred to in this Business Report report, this seems to be the first public pronouncement in a very long time on the employment crisis in the country by the supposedly foremost body representing businesses in SA.  The context is that South Africa is experiencing an unemployment crisis of epic proportions.  Encouragingly, the SAB entrepreneurial campaign brings together the company’s initiatives under one integrated package and was launched in Vilakazi Street, Soweto on Monday.  BUSA Chief Executive Officer Tanya Cohen roused herself to say the SAB’s entrepreneurship initiative was in line with BUSA’s approach to black economic empowerment and inclusive economic growth.
