Building Foundations with the Chamber of Commerce
Toenadering, the Afrikaans word for “moving closer”, aptly captures the sentiment at a recent Muffin Morning, where the UKZN Foundation hosted Durban Chamber of Commerce’s outgoing CEO, Mr Andrew Layman.
In his candid presentation, Layman shared his perceptions of the University and stressed the need for the University to engage actively with the KwaZulu-Natal business community. Opportunities for this, he suggested, included value-adding research to impact social and economic advancement.
He said a potential area of engagement was the maritime sector, since Durban had one of the busiest ports on the African continent.
The Muffin Morning information sharing and engagement forum is proving a valuable platform for interacting with internal and external partners.
