The goal of BEE is not to make life difficult for anyone. It is about affording opportunities to those who did not have them before. It is also about making life easier for those businesses with an annual turnover below R5 million. Making huge demands on them will be like militating against investment and national prosperity. One potential client of ours is an EME (businesses worth less that R5 million annual turnover) and needs all the support he can get in order to thrive. I have always said patriotic huge corporates should take it upon their shoulders to make sure such businesses prosper.
