“In the early phase, many people got very wealthy. Now the move is towards creating black industrialist to ensure black people control and are involved in the companies they invest in. It is about developing a respect for profit and loss and deepening their skills and knowledge. We must allow for a multi-pronged strategy for change in this country.”
He said the current task of the BEE advisory council was to make sure industrialists “find deep roots”. While there is room for trusts, there is “even greater room for those who want to roll up their sleeves and get involved and not just have a passing shareholding in a business”.
