Alliance of Chambers


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.
