The Democratic Alliance has welcomed the decision to summon Minister of
Trade and Industry Rob Davies to Parliament to account for the limitations
placed on corporate visa applications in relation to business undertakings.
DA MP of Trade and Industry Dean Macpherson said the Minister failed to
respond to questions for the decision on any other platform.
Macpherson alleges that no consultations took place between stake holders
and the committee when conclusions were drawn on the matter.
“For this reason,” he added “we want to interrogate the Minister about
the decision he has taken to ensure that such a decision is not implemented.”
The Trade and Industry MP fears constraints on the corporate visa
applications would stifle job creation and investment to certain secures.
“It will be problematic if they
are unable to employ people across the labour spectrum,” he reiterated.
