A Message from Mayor of New York City,

Michael R. Bloomberg

February 28, 2008

Dear Friends:

It is a great pleasure to welcome everyone to the launch of the Africa Platform series hosted by the South African Chamber of Commerce in America.

The Africa Entrepreneurship Platform is a terrific opportunity for African business owners to forge a new path to success throughout the five boroughs and around the world. New York City’s economy has always been driven by the prosperity and diversity of our small businesses, and this series will bring together entrepreneurs of every background to help strengthen our community’s economic ties to Africa. SACCA hosts a wide range of programs and services that promote the business endeavors of South Africa and South African New Yorkers, and, in so doing, provides invaluable resources not only for its members but also for all New Yorkers.

On behalf of the City of New York, I commend SACCA for hosting this important event and for their tremendous contributions to our City’s small business community. Please accept my best wishes for an enjoyable event and continued success.


Michael R. Bloomberg
