The SBI is committed to evidence-based policy. Research, conducted both in South Africa and around the world, provides information for us to advocate for reform. By reading and thinking about how we can apply the findings from surveys, data mining, longitudinal studies and campaigns, we hope to positively influence the environment in which SMEs can start, run and grow in South Africa.
On this page we showcase the research we’ve read as a resource to others thinking about our economic challenges and navigating a way forward for a better business environment and inclusive, transformative growth for South Africa.
