CEOs MeetingThe Trade Hub, in partnership with the Swaziland Standards Authority (SWASA), supported a Chief Executive Officers’ Breakfast Meeting on April 29 in Ezulwini, Swaziland. The event was attended by CEOS from a wide variety of industries, as well as the Principal Secretary of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Trade J. Nkambule.

The purpose of the CEOs’ Breakfast Meeting was to sensitize CEOs on the need to adopt and use standards in their businesses, to update them on the future of standards in Swaziland and their responsibility to SWASA, and to create awareness on standards, from identification to eventual certification of businesses. The success of standardization is dependent on full engagement with industry.

The Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Trade made a commitment to all participants that as SWASA’s ministry, it will lead by example by being the first government ministry to get certified to SZNS ISO 9001. The Ministry also thanked development partners such as the Southern Africa Trade Hub, UNIDO and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) for the assistance Swaziland is receiving to enhance quality infrastructure in the country.
