About IDC


partnersSharing information and skills

In contributing to the creation of balanced, sustainable economic growth in Africa, we leverage our associations with a variety of organisations and government departments.

These include:

  • Economic Development Department
    The government's Economic Development portfolio focuses on matters of macro and micro-economic development planning. It has set out a New Growth Path for the country, placing employment at the centre of government’s work and policies. 

  • Department of Trade and Industry
    Department of Trade and Industry supports the government's economic goals of growth, employment and equity, providing leadership through understanding the economy, identifying economic opportunities and potential. Key to this is the creation of a consistent, competitive and socially responsible environment for investment, enterprise and trade. 

  • Centre for Development and Enterprise
    The Centre for Development and Enterprise is one of the country's leading development think tanks. It focuses on development issues and the relationship of these issues to growing South Africa's economy and creating an equitable environment. 

  • National Economic Development and Labour Council
    The National Economic Development and Labour Council is the umbrella body through which government, labour, business and community organisations meet to find common ground on economic, labour and development issues, and related challenges. 

  • Small Enterprise Finance Agency
    The vision of the Small Enterprise Finance Agency (sefa) is to be the leading catalyst for the development of sustainable Survivalist, Micro, Small and Medium enterprises through the provision of finance. 

  • Small Enterprise Development Agency
    The aim of the Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda) is to develop, support and promote small enterprises throughout the country. Seda is an agency of the Department of Trade and Industry. 

  • National Empowerment Fund
    The National Empowerment Fund promotes black economic equality and transformation and is a facilitator for Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment.
