SBI announces new board, focuses on SME research

As the Small Business Institute (SBI) reconstitutes its board of directors after adopting a new memorandum of incorporation, a new approach, centred on small and medium enterprise (SME) research, is set to be adopted. The new board members, led by chairperson Bernard Swanepoel, will each be responsible for a specific portfolio, with several areas of research exploring the impediments to SME development planned for this year.
