MBSA Congress

Business Bulletin 18 - 3rd October 2008

Master Builders South Africa (MBSA) recently held its 103rd Congress in Port Elizabeth from the 21st to the 23rd September 2008. As usual there was an impressive range of speakers including the then Minister of Public Works, Ms Thoko Didiza. Other speakers included motivational speakers, political, social and economic analysts and various other experts and leaders in their field giving delegates critical insight inside a wide range of topics.

The theme of the Congress was Building South Africa: Challenges and Opportunities. While some of the challenges are sobering, one is left with a sense that the building industry is excited about current events and the times ahead, along with all of the potential opportunities that arise in times of change. The air excitement was added to by the tumultuous political events that were simultaneously taking place, providing a dramatic backdrop to the Congress.

As always it is enlightening and gratifying to experience the networking among the leading role players in the building industry of South Africa and Master Builders South Africa must be thanked and commended for its efforts in ensuring a successful Congress.
