Administration & accounts: Charlene Steynberg and Natalie Koopman Printing: FA Print The 2020/21 edition of Limpopo Business is the 12th issue of this highly successful publication that, since its launch in 2007, has established itself as the premier business and investment guide for the Limpopo Province. Limpopo has been attracting significant investments in the mining sector in recent years and the green light for the creation of the Musina-Makhado Special Economic Zone in the province’s far north has attracted several billion dollars. A metallurgical and energy cluster will inaugurate the SEZ, after which investments in agri-processing, logistics and manufacturing are expected to follow. In addition to the regular articles providing insight into each of the key economic sectors of the province, there are special features on transport and logistics and specific plans that are in place to promote manufacturing in Limpopo. News related to mining, agriculture, tourism, construction and property, water, education and development finance is carried in overviews of the main economic sectors. To complement the extensive local, national and international distribution of the print edition, the full content can also be viewed online at www.limpopobusiness.co.za. Updated information on the Limpopo 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, our flagship South African Business title and the new addition to our list of publications, African Business, which was launched in 2020. ■ Chris Whales Publisher, Global Africa Network Media | Email: chris@gan.co.za DISTRIBUTION Limpopo Business is distributed internationally on outgoing and incoming trade missions, through trade and investment agencies; to foreign offices in South Africa’s main trading partners around the world; at top national and international events; through the offices of foreign representatives in South Africa; as well as nationally and regionally via chambers of commerce, tourism offices, airport lounges, provincial government departments, municipalities and companies.

MESSAGE The Musina-Makhado Special Infras Economic Zone is a flagship project driver develo Limpopo Premier Chupu Stanley Mathabatha invites private investors to work with the public sector in building infrastructure and growing the economy. Iwant to start by thanking Global Africa Network for sustaining the publication of this important magazine, Limpopo Business. I also wish to join in celebrating this 12th edition of what I consider a premier business and investment guide for our beautiful Limpopo Province. Indeed, Limpopo Business is an important partner in the continued endeavour to market and position Limpopo as a leading and most attractive business and investment destination. This informative edition once again affords us an opportunity to take you through the plentiful business and investment offerings of our province, from Bela-Bela to Musina. Through this publication, you will also learn about great private-public partnership investments that are the pulse of our provincial economy. As you will come to learn, Limpopo is home to a thriving mining sector, tantalising tourism offerings and a limitless potential for the agricultural sector. The construction industry is one of the booming sectors of the Limpopo economy, the inherited legacy of an infrastructure backlog means that the sector has a longer future. Investment in this sector is an investment in the future. Limpopo Province has also moved to embrace the new digital economy through competitive support infrastructure. The Musina-Makhado Special Economic Zone (MMSEZ) remains our flagship economic development project. Through this initiative, and through partnerships with the private sector, we hope to stimulate economic growth, create much-needed employment opportunities and reduce the ballooning gap of inequality. Business opportunities in this SEZ project are limitless. These opportunities range from manufacturing, agroprocessing, automotives, steel, pharmaceutical, logistics and many more. What is even more tantalising is the fact that this project enjoys the overwhelming support of our National Government. As the Limpopo Provincial Government, we have placed this Musina- Makhado SEZ Project at the apex of our priorities. We believe that the only available option for us is to make this project a resounding success. Limpopo is open for business! ■ MESSAGE Limpopo Prem priorities in we already receivin We th Ad Premier Chupu af Stanley Mathabatha successful nation general election election which w Chupu Stanley Premier of Limp 7 LIMPOPO BUSINESS 2020/21 LIMPOPO BUSINE
