On 24 March 2015, the KLCBT convened all the Business Chambers and Tourism Organisations within the Kruger Lowveld region, including NAFCOC and others, to present the formation of a regional chambers forum.  This will enable us to speak as one voice for business and tourism when we need to engage on a district and provincial level.

All regional chambers and similar organisations agreed to and welcomed the initiative – the MOU was signed at the end of 2015.
