Partner at Spoor & Fisher a Finalist in the Business Achiever Award
We are delighted to announce that Shanaaz Mahomed, a partner at Spoor & Fisher was selected as a finalist for the Business Woman’s Regional Business Achiever Award 2007. This award recognises remarkable women who are making a difference in business in the categories of start-up, entrepreneur, professional and corporate. Shanaaz was presented with a certificate in the professional category at a Gala Dinner held at the South African Reserve Bank. We congratulate Shanaaz on her achievement!
The guest speaker at the dinner, the Governor of the South African Reserve Bank Mr Tito Mboweni mentioned that when he joined Central Banking in 1998 South Africa was in a deficit of $25 billion and at present we have surplus of $28 billion. These figures reflect that the economic growth of South Africa is good. However he did caution consumers that the year-on-year CPIX inflation figure for May 2007 is above a comfortable level of 6 and encouraged consumers to curb unnecessary spending.
