Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment

Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) is a specific government policy to advance economic transformation and enhance the economic participation of previously disadvantaged people in the South African economy. The vision of the BEE system is to work towards ensuring that the South African economy is restructured, to enable the meaningful participation of previously disadvantaged people, particularly in rural or under-developed communities in the mainstream economy, in a method that has a positive influence on employment, income redistribution and economic growth. This is done through equity and enablement policies and strategic interventions.
