FOREWORD Gauteng is as rich in history as it is in minerals and other natural resources and it has evolved to become the economic hub of the African continent. The provincial economy is the one of the leading economies in Africa, accounting for 10 percent of the continent’s gross domestic product (GDP). Although, in area, Gauteng is the smallest province in South Africa, it remains a leader across the board. The province hosts the headquarters of South Africa’s top four banks as well as the headquarters of many local and multinational commercial, industrial and mining companies; and three of South Africa’s six metropolitan municipalities are located within the province. The provincial economy is open and internationally competitive, and has much to offer to companies and investors alike. The province is home to a first-class stock exchange, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), and there is much scope to initiate or expand mutually beneficial public-private partnerships with large and small businesses, entrepreneurs and developers. In addition, Gauteng enjoys a commanding geographical location, ambitious eco-tourism and heritage-tourism programmes and vibrant lifestyle opportunities. As many investors have come to realise, as Gauteng grows, so grows the South African economy! Any entrepreneur or investor looking to do business in Gauteng has already made a good choice. As an epicentre for growth, Gauteng is leading innovation in the South African economy. A multitude of advantages and incentives are available for investors looking to do business in Gauteng. Ready to assist, the Gauteng Growth and Development Agency (GGDA) is the first port of call for any investor or entrepreneur who is seeking to capitalise on the many profitable opportunities.
