The 2023/24 edition of Eastern Cape Business is the 16th edition of this successful publication that, since its launch in 2006, has established itself as the premier business and investment guide for the Eastern Cape. The Eastern Cape Development Corporation (ECDC) is supporting this issue of the journal, both in providing up-to-date information for editorial use and in sharing information about its activities. It will also distribute the journal through its regular channels. The Eastern Cape’s multi-faceted approach to the challenges and opportunities of sustainability are explored in a special feature. From caring for agricultural land through partnerships between farmers, wool brokers and fashion houses, to solar panels and improved lighting and water systems, companies are finding ways to incorporate sensible and profitable solutions into their business models. The Nelson Mandela Bay Development Agency celebrates a significant milestone this year, it being 20 years since it began operations.

Border-Kei Chamber of

Border-Kei Chamber of Business provides key services to over 650 member organisations, and aims to be the “voice of business” in the region. Border-Kei Chamber of Business (BKCOB) has offices in East London and Queenstown (Komani) which serve the greater Border-Kei region. After joining, members are added to the website directory and receive their proud member logo to add to their signature as part of their package. The Chamber offers letters of support to members who are in good standing for their submissions to government tenders as well as letters of introduction to members who are looking to increase the scope of their businesses.

The Chamber has built a relationship with the metro to ensure we create an enabling environment within which businesses thrive. To this end, the Chamber has created initiatives to actively attract investment into our city. Port expansion remains one of Chamber’s main focus areas, with Transnet still the main stakeholder keeping the future of our region and investors’ interests alive. Present lobby refers to the expansion of the Container Terminal, the widening and deepening of the Port itself. As simple as it is, those three activities will in fact make Buffalo City a more desirable location. Bathandwa Njobe | Wela Brukwe Widening the network remains one of our guiding principles, and engaging with as many stakeholders as possible toward economic growth sits at the top of our agenda. As we engage we focus on the collaboration rather than the exception and recently a number of MOUs have been agreed in structuring those engagements. The Chamber’s own projects succeed because we invite participation, and the Call-2-Action with related waste recycling has introduced a new way of approaching the everlasting challenge of littering and waste collection. The Border-Kei Chamber of Business is a business support organisation serving the Border-Kei Region since 1877. Through collaborations and communication with diverse stakeholders, we will keep working to serve the interests of business in the Border-Kei region.
