Creating a South Africa of increasing prosperity for all by harnessing the resources and capabilities of business in partnership with government and civil society to deliver economic growth, transformation and inclusion

Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA) is an independent association whose members represent South African big business leadership and major multinational investors. It is a forum for South Africa’s business leaders to engage actors in civil society, government and labour to exchange ideas on matters of national interest and to facilitate an effective dialogue with government and other stakeholders.

In an environment of critical and urgent challenges on multiple fronts, BLSA is focusing the attention of its members on three core activities:
  • Advancing a modern, inclusive and growing economy;
  • Upholding the Constitution and protecting the integrity of the state; and
  • Demonstrating that business is a national asset, and is central in addressing poverty, unemployment, economic justice, workplace transformation and racism.
