We welcome the announcement by the national government that wine exports can resume. The wine industry supports a lot of agricultural jobs in the Western Cape, and exports of wine are an important economic contributor. The changes to this regulation are therefore positive news during this difficult economic period.
Working with Wesgro and the City of Cape Town, we also launched a tool that will help businesses locate and apply for financial support available to them. The tool asks users five easy questions, ranks the answers according to pre-determined criteria, and provides a list of relief measures the business could apply for, all in under a minute. The tool can be accessed at www.supportbusiness.co.za/covid-19-support-finder.
