“The role of business in the nation’s overall recovery is now underscored like never before. The scope and opportunity to share the South African and African business context is limitless. eNCA Business will uncover the impact that big business has on consumers and the economy, as well as share insights and learnings from business players across the fraternity” says Devan Murugan.
“The differentiating factor of the business show is the ability of the team to communicate and interpret market analysis and business performance in a way that can be appreciated by both consumers and corporate,” says Rofhiwa Madzena. “Now more than ever there is a need for viewers to be empowered with information that will help them understand and navigate the business landscape,” Madzena added.
