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 Updated information on KwaZulu-Natal is also available through our monthly e-newsletter, which you can subscribe to online at, in addition to our complementary business-to-business titles that cover all nine provinces as well as our flagship South African Business title.

PROFILE Msunduzi

PROFILE Msunduzi Municipality: City of Pietermaritzburg Strategic location is driving economic growth. Vision A safe, vibrant city in which to live, work, play, and do business. Mission To ensure that the municipality functions effectively and in a sustainable manner in order to deliver service excellence to the community. The Msunduzi Municipality is the second largest in KwaZulu-Natal and is proudly the capital of the province, incorporating the picturesque city of Pietermaritzburg. The confirmation of capital status has entrenched the city’s role and position as the administrative and political hub of KwaZulu-Natal. Msunduzi is also moving in the direction of achieving metropolitan status. Key Development Projects at Msunduzi Municipality Manaye Hall Precinct This investment development seeks to enhance and empower the economy and entrepreneurs within the Imbali area and surrounds, and will further provide a link with the existing value chain in the area. The city is strategically located along the all-important Durban-Gauteng movement corridor, recognised in the National Development Plan for South Africa as Strategic Intervention Plan 2, commonly referred to as SIP2. Industrial development vision Msunduzi aims to see its industrial sector grow so that it remains the engine that powers the local economy, and that it does so with particular regard to providing dignified and safe work for its residents. Another goal is that the industrial and business sector stakeholders partner with the municipality in striving for a carbon neutral industrial future, which takes into account the critical need to prevent further climate change, and to ensure that there is protection of the environment comprising the people, the flora and the fauna that make up local ecosystems. This will ensure a truly sustainable future. Msunduzi Integrated Public Transport Network The overall goal of this initiative is to improve the quality of life for Msunduzi’s residents through the provision of an integrated public transport network that is rapid, safe and secure, convenient, clean, affordable, disability friendly and socially equitable. The dominant public transport corridor, starting in Edendale in the south-west, is routed through the CBD and across the N3 freeway to Northdale, a distance of over 17km.

PROFILE Neighbourhood Development and Partnership Grant The NDPG is driven by the notion that public investment and funding can be used creatively to attract private and community investment to unlock the social and economic potential within the targeted neglected townships and neighbourhoods. National Treasury has made successive allocations for this programme of R40-million (2017/2018) and R42.36-million (2018/2019). Liberty Midlands Mall Phase 3 The Liberty Midlands Mall is a regional shopping centre, and given its position on the N3 national highway, the centre captures the wider regional market (Pietermaritzburg and surrounding area along the N3 corridor). Other projects which fall under the NDPG: • civic building • informal trading stalls; piazza • Mt Partridge • Thwala Road public realm • Promenade 1 • Promenade 2 Youth Enterprise Park This project, located in Pietermaritzburg city centre, is to assist with improving the regularisation of informal trade and to provide a more sophisticated space for businesses in this sector so that traders can move up from street trading.
