BENCHMARKING MISSION IN KZN FOR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT

OR Tambo District Municipality, King Sabata Dalindyebo Municipality, ECDC and the Vulindlela Management structure and private sector partners embarked on September 05 and 06, 2019 on a benchmarking mission in Mandeni, KZN for Industrial Development. King Sabata Dalindyebo Municipality is a beneficiary to the industrial park development initiative as outlined in the State of the Nation Address by His Excellency President Cyril in his maiden speech this year.

The purpose of the visit was to learn and extract best practice principles from Enterprise iLembe, iThala and the iSithebe Industrial Park in Mandeni.

Isithebe is similar to Vulindlela Industrial park eMthatha and in partnership with all stakeholders, government is committed to revitalizing the Park and attracting and retaining business and industries into Vulindlela. Mainly is to ensure KSD as well as partners is able to attract and retain existing investors in the industrial park.

The visit was facilitated through iLembes Development Agency.

Participants were hosted by iThala, a similar entity to ECDC who took us around the estate where world class textiles manufacturer and a precision plastic manufacturing plant were visited.

This allowed participants to engage both the landlord (iThala) and tenants within the park.

Day 2- was a visit to Dube   Tradeport Special Economic Zone. KSD will host an Economic Zone in Mthatha and exposure visit was critical to ensure that we learn from the lessons learnt and is able to leverage on the experise from Dube Tradeport... Dube Tradeport is seen as a model to many aspiring SEZ s in Africa... Our vision is to reposition KSD s economy as a power house in the Eastern Cape Province.
