The adoption of the Mining Charter 3 and refined policies in South Africa presents a new dawn for SMEs and entrepreneurs in the Minerals and Metals sector. While large business is changing their operating models to remain competitive, there is a firm belief that small-scale and emerging business will unlock future employment opportunities and drive economic activity both locally and globally.
