What We Do

Home / What We Do

The SADC – the Southern African Development Community – region is home to some of the world’s fastest growing economies, most valuable natural resources, and nearly 300 million people.

SPSF, SADC’s Private Sector Forum, brings together the private sector from across the region to facilitate integration and trade and to reduce barriers to investment and sustainable growth.

The SPSF Secretariat exists to support its 15 Member Organisations (Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe) and to represent SADC’s private sector interests.

The current Strategic Plan (2017-2022) is built on the following pillars.

Pillar 1 - Research, Advocacy, and Lobbying

Pillar 2 - ICT and Knowledge Management

Pillar 3 - Institutional Strengthening and Capacity Development

Pillar 4 – Governance

Collectively, these pillars are leveraged to promote evidence-based decision-making across the region.
