5.3 B-BBEE and Economic Growth
The scope and sustainability of B-BBEE will depend in large measure on growth in the sector and visa versa. Being exposed to global markets, the sector needs to maintain its competitiveness and profitability to secure long-term sustainable growth. Growth linked transformation needs to provide for the expansion of the country's limited plantation resource, increased productivity, value-adding and SMME development in making B-BBEE work for the poor.
