Mafeteng-The Basotho Enterprises Development Corporation (BEDCO) has organized a one-day flea market in Maseru scheduled for Friday next week.
The Corporation's Communications and Marketing Officer Lerato Maieane said the activity is aimed at improving the informal sector while at the same time helping generate income.
This would give opportunity to small manufacturers to find market for their products through exhibitions of this nature as well as to network with others for business development.
Maieane said promoting local produce and taking them to the flea markets is another form of cutting on unnecessary spending on imports into the country.
She said through the activity they will encourage small manufacturers to work together in partnerships to avoid local businesses failing.
The Basotho Enterprises Development Corporation (BEDCO) is a parastatal established by the BEDCO Act of 1980 as amended with the objective to establish and develop Basotho owned enterprises.
