Wholesale and Retail SETA: Empowering Informal Workers on Two Fronts

As a partner of the inaugural Informal Economy Global Summit 2024 (IEGS 2024), the Wholesale and Retail SETA (W&RSETA) is gearing up to make a significant impact on the global informal economy stage. However, their commitment doesn’t end there. In a testament to their dedication to informal economy workers, W&RSETA will also be joining forces with the Informal Economy Development Forum (IEDF) at the South African International Trade Exhibition (SAITEX), ensuring their presence and support across multiple platforms.

With a firm belief in the power of skills development, empowerment, and economic transformation, W&RSETA recognizes the immense economic growth potential of the informal economy, particularly in the wholesale and retail sector. Through its partnership with the inaugural IEGS 2024, W&RSETA is poised to contribute expertise, resources, and insights to empower informal economy worldwide.

At the summit, W&RSETA will be at the forefront of discussions on skills development, vocational training, and capacity-building for informal economy workers. Leveraging its experience and expertise, the organization will showcase innovative approaches to address the skills gaps and challenges faced by informal economy workers, paving the way for greater inclusion and economic empowerment.

At SAITEX, W&RSETA will join forces with the IEDF to provide support, resources, and opportunities to informal businesses looking to expand their reach and tap into global markets. Through workshops, networking events, and collaborative initiatives, W&RSETA and the IEDF will work hand in hand to develop the informal sector and facilitate their integration into the formal economy.

Together, at both the IEGS 2024 and SAITEX, IEDF and the W&RSETA are poised to make a tangible difference in the lives of informal economy workers worldwide. By championing skills development, empowerment, and economic transformation, they are paving the way for a more inclusive, resilient, and prosperous future for all.
