This concept paper proposes (a) market driven farm and off-farm entrepreneurial options, that could take advantage of the existing opportunities, thus leading to the creation of indigenous oriented economic growth and (b) empowerment of the small and medium scale private enterprises to create an enabling environment conducive for equitable growth of their businesses. This calls for direct interplay between donor assistance and the private sector (farmers, processors, traders) through intensive use of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and Cooperatives to enhance domestic capacity of businesses to address problems which they face. In working towards effective and equitable economic growth, it is necessary to increase black ownership and investment at all levels of the economy. Given the major role of the agriculture sector in the NCAs, it is suggested that black empowerment in the agribusiness sector may be a logical start for the indigenization of the economy.
