Southern Africa Trade and Investment Hub (the Hub)
DAI, the implementer of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Southern Africa Trade & Investment Hub project is seeking proposals to conduct a survey of about 50 U.S. companies in South Africa to assess their compliance with the Government of South Africa’s Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Legislation which aims to address social and economic inequalities from the apartheid era using the Political Economy Analysis (PEA) as a useful analytical framework to inform this survey and efforts to improve the policy in response to market failures.
The Hub is a five-year project that seeks to increase regional trade and investment as well as agricultural value chain competitiveness in Southern Africa. The project supports the Southern Africa region, including Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) Member States, the private sector, and civil society organizations to realize greater regional and global trade linkages and export-oriented business development. These objectives are underpinned by an improved regional trade and investment enabling environment coupled with increased agricultural value chain competitiveness supporting intra-regional trade.
The Hub invites companies and/or organization to submit a proposal to do an assessment of multinationals’ current engagement and compliance with the B-BBEE legislation which includes conducting a survey and interviews with approximately 50 U.S. companies
