Vision and mission
Sakeliga is an independent business community with more than 12 000 members. The organisation was founded in 2011. Sakeliga exists to lobby for and create a constitutional order, free markets, prosperity and a favourable business climate in the interests of its members as well as in the common interest wherever its members do business.
What is an independent business community?
An independent business community is a community of business people with the following three characteristics:
They are state-proof:
Their respective businesses are as well shielded as possible against political risks such as expropriation, forced stock dilutions such as BEE and other forms of harmful state intervention.
They have bargaining power:
To collectively negotiate with the government for a fair relationship and to contribute to a favourable business environment.
They have institutional alternatives:
To create an alternative business environment through self-regulation and private infrastructure, in which economic activity by its members and anyone else can be maintained if the state’s business environment is unsatisfactory.
