“The process improvement includes: operational excellence, sustainable economic empowerment programmes and small business and enterprise development.

“It also seeks to improve efficiency, stakeholders’ participation and new innovations that would add value to the GMoU model.

“I implore our community leaders, women, youth and other stakeholders to keep in mind and continue to support the implementation of the GMoU so that our communities can reap more benefits from the agreement.”
