Knowledge key to growing business, Skillsportal.co.za – Skills Portal
Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Elizabeth Thabethe has urged business owners to acquire the necessary knowledge, information and skills they need to grow their businesses.
Speaking at the ‘Taking the dtic to the people’ outreach campaign at Shatale Sports Ground in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga, Thabethe said a lot of people were unable to sustain and grow their businesses because they do not make an effort to get information that will assist them.
She said a lack of information resulted in people not knowing where to go for help and to air their challenges.
“As businesspeople, it is important that you spend time gathering information that will assist you to grow your business from being a small business to becoming one of the big businesses in the country, so that you can create sustainable jobs for your communities.”
