The Chamber’s core objective is promoting trade and commercial relations between the Southern African region

The overall strategy for 2017 is to:

• Reposition the Chamber as a respected contributor to the Limpopo economy through active engagement of key stakeholders for the promotion of chamber interest and benefits for its members;
• Enhance value-add to its members through effective networking opportunities;
• Engage on pertinent business issues within the province; and
• Enhance closer working relations between the chamber and its members and stakeholders.


The Chamber recognises service excellence by handing over certificates to nominated business on a monthly basis. The highlight on its social calendar is the annual banquet where the Business Personality of the year is announced, while recognition is also given during the occasion to individuals or organisations that have excelled in a number of other categories.
