The 2018/19 edition of KwaZulu-Natal Business is the 10th issue of this highly successful publication that, since its launch in 2008, has established itself as the premier business and investment guide for the KwaZulu-Natal Province. In addition to the regular articles providing insight into each of the key economic sectors of the province, there are special features on the investment prospects of Durban (eThekwini) and on the specific attractions for investors of other regions throughout the province. We are pleased to include a survey of the province’s economy from Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal, the dedicated trade and inward investment promotion agency that promises to be “your knowledge partner in business”. To complement the extensive local, national and international distribution of the print edition, the full content can also be viewed online at www.kwazulunatalbusiness.co.za. Updated information on KwaZulu-Natal is also available through our monthly e-newsletter, which you can subscribe to online at www.gan.co.za, in addition to our complementary business-to-business titles that cover all nine provinces as well as our flagship South African Business title.

SPECIAL FEATURE

SPECIAL FEATURE landscape of the area north of the city of Durban. The one is the building of the King Shaka International Airport and the associated Dube TradePort; the other is the conversion by sugar giant Tongaat Hulett of its land holdings into property developments. Dube TradePort is a 3 000-hectare development that encompasses the airport and is ideally situated for any logistics business as it is very close to Africa’s busiest cargo port (at Durban) and 140km from the deepest natural harbour in the southern hemisphere where the Port of Richards Bay and the Richards Bay Industrial Development Zone (RBIDZ) are located. Dube TradePort is a Special Economic Zone and it encompasses: • Dube Cargo Terminal. • Dube Tradezone: 77 hectares, with plans in place for 300 hectares, fully-serviced industrial estate within the SEZ. Suitable for warehousing, manufacturing, assembling, cargo distribution, etc. • Dube City: 12 hectares of office, retail and hospitality space. • Dube Agrizone: intended to support growing, packaging and distribution of high-value perishables and horticultural products. • Dube iConnect: the precinct’s dedicated IT and telecommunications provider and the only locally hosted cloud service in the province. The 1 300-hectare Cornubia integrated human settlement development is a huge undertaking. Tongaat Hulett Development, the eThekwini Municipality and the national and provincial departments responsible for housing are working together on a series of developments that aim to integrate working and living so that people do not have to travel vast distances to and from work. The southern part of the project will cater for 24 000 homes, 170 hectares of industrial land and more than one-million square metres of commercial floor space. This will be complemented by public open spaces (430 hectares) and social and community facilities. The Cornubia Industrial and Business Estate is already almost sold out and the Cornubia Retail Park is likely to attract considerable interest because of its location on the M41. Two other Tongaat Hulett developments on the North Coast are progressing rapidly: • Sibaya: bisected by the M4, this area has the Sibaya Casino complex and is intended to cater for resort-style accommodation, hotels, conference and entertainment facilities and office parks. • Ridgeside: between the M4 freeway and the Umhlanga Ridge Town Centre, residential and office space.
