Government will launch a fund that will support informal sector enterprises, especially in the townships, to achieve inclusive growth in the country’s economy.

This was revealed at the Presidential Business Working Group session, which was hosted by President Jacob Zuma at the Sefako Makgatho Presidential Guesthouse in Pretoria on Friday.

The Business Working Group includes government and business leaders.
