He explained that his docket is a totally new Ministry, adding that they signed their first performance contracts in October 2023.

"Initially, Cooperatives and MSMEs were just departments domiciled in different ministries," he added.

"I have always been a top performer, so look out for this year's performance ratings.”

“The Ministry of Cooperatives and MSME Development is a key cog in the implementation of the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA). We spur economic growth through the key value chains such as dairy and coffee and also through the bolstering of MSMEs," Chelugui said.
