From Creamer Media in Johannesburg, this is the Real Economy Report. During a sustainable enterprise tour of one of the 24 businesses that form part of construction and engineering firm Murray & Roberts’ enterprise development programme last month, the company said it subcontracted between 70 and 80% of its building work, while its enterprise development programme held tremendous possibilities to sustain and grow many smaller and developing contractors. Anine Vermeulen reports.

Anine Vermeulen:
Large corporations like Murray & Roberts have a meaningful role to play in small- business development and with South Africa celebrating 20 years of democracy last month, the company reflected on what the company had achieved over the past 20 years.

Anine Vermeulen:
Mayet explained that the company had progressed from compliance to commitment in terms of enterprise development, and that its 24 enterprise development programmes ranged from small to large businesses.
