M&G Hangout: Is BEE helping to spread wealth in SA?

Amid the usual calls for BEE to be scrapped, government last year issued revised BEE codes meant to plug some of the gaps in the existing legislation. But many companies raised concerns that they may be prejudiced by the changes.

So what is the score – do we need stricter controls to ensure that BEE has the trickle-down effect it was intended to have or fewer controls to allow businesses to expand without the need to jump through too many hoops? 

Join us on Friday at 12.30pm for a live video with Mail & Guardian editor-in-chief Nic Dawes and Lerato Ratsoma, managing director of the economic empowerment ratings agency Empowerdex to look at what has worked and what has not and to discuss the state of BEE in South Africa.

Send us your questions and comments in the comment on Twitter using the tag #MGhangout.

You can watch the live video in this article and on our Google+ page
