Recently our lives and specifically our businesses have been affected and disrupted by droughts, crime, energy issues / load shedding and now the Corona COVID -19 virus.

We wish to gather information from you as business owners and leaders as to the impact the disruptions are having on your business. Hence the survey is designed to gather a high-level insight into the impact on businesses and measures taken to ensure sustainable business operations.

The survey consists of 12 questions and should not take you more than 10 minutes to complete. The results will be made available to the participating business chambers and/or related businesses and organisations in your town / city as well as to group editors for publication in the applicable local publications.

Feedback to chamber members and other business organisations with regards to the results can also be arranged
