In his speech Bongani Linda stated that the Chamber operates in a very dynamic environment.
He said "The North Coast is only growing and the level of progress is vast. The chamber will reflect this environment by being as dynamic and progressive in its approach".

A number of projects, initiatives, services and events are being planned and will be launched during the course of this year. These include a business survey to develop an understanding of local business needs and issues, and beautifying the entrance to Ballito.

Project Jumpstart will distribute 20 marketing packs to the value of R200 000 to 20 budding entrepreneurs to help them market their businesses more effectively. These marketing packs will dove-tail with the Chamber's mentorship programme.
