SACCI & THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS

While the principal “clients” of SACCI’s Parliamentary Information Centre (PIC) in Cape Town are SACCI and its constituent Chambers, the PIC also provides a member service to major corporates, business associations, parastatals and diplomatic missions, to bring them up to date instantly and accurately on legislative and other developments at any stage in Parliament.

The service also provides information on various related topics, such as “political who’s who and what’s what,” which are designed to identify and interpret changes in South Africa’s econo-political climate at regular intervals.

In brief the primary functions of the PIC are to:

  1. facilitate regular interaction between Parliament, business and business delegations;
  2. provide an extensive “listening post” and lobbying facility for SACCI and its members; and
  3. operate a fast, accurate and efficient value-added information service.

OPERATIONS

The highest authority in SACCI is the Annual Convention, where all categories of members determine the broad policy of the chamber by means of Convention resolutions. Provincial Congresses are held to enable constituent chambers to deliberate on regional/provincial issues and to identify matters that require national consideration.

The chamber movement maintains close contact with government at all levels – local, provincial and national.

SACCI is also represented directly on the various chambers of NEDLAC, (the National Economic Development and Labour Council), the national tripartite economic and social policy advisory body.

Government officials attend the SACCI Annual National Convention and provincial congresses, and participate in the debates. The resolutions of the Convention and congresses are conveyed to the government both by letter and by deputation. Meetings with Cabinet Ministers are held and interviews with officials take place regularly.

Government interacts with SACCI on issues that affect business, including proposed legislation. SACCI, in turn, consults its constituent chambers before submitting the matter firstly to the appropriate Standing Committee for discussion and report, and then preparing a considered comment.
