AGRICULTURE

MCCI believes that the farming community, especially the start-up and small farmers, of the region and the province should also have a voice through the Chamber of Commerce taking into consideration the contribution of the sector to the GDP of the province. A strategic plan on incorporating those areas and new sector into the MCCI, is currently one of the main goals for 2018. All benefits & services offered to the Bloemfontein / Mangaung branch will be extended to the new areas to unite not only the Metro, but also the Free State and Qwa-Qwa in the near future.
