Task Teams

The action arm of the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber

The Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber has established a structure of six task teams to facilitate the ease of doing business. The task teams consist of business member volunteers who are passionate about the sustainability of business in the city of Nelson Mandela Bay.

Known as the Action Arm of the Business Chamber, the task teams have traditionally been the enablers of creating an environment for business to grow in and addressing inhibiting factors impacting business.
