Officially supported and used by the Northern Cape Department of Economic Development and Tourism, Northern Cape Business is unique as a business and investment guide that focuses exclusively on the Northern Cape Province. In addition to comprehensive overviews of sectors of the economy, this publication has several special articles which focus on transformative projects, such as the solar and wind farms rapidly coming on line and the massive potential represented by the Square Kilometre Array radio telescope, a multi-billion rand international project already taking shape in the vast open plains of the Karoo. Updated information on Northern Cape 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 Northern Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry Your ultimate business connection. Our heritage in brief NOCCI was established on 22 February 2000 when the Chamber of Business and the Kimberley Afrikaanse Sakekamer amalgamated. At the time, these two organisations had served the business community of Kimberley for 120 years. Membership advantages A Chamber assesses and evaluates the needs of the local business community, especially regarding the need for services to small business at a reasonable cost: • Monitors developments at the local level • Mobilises business opinion on local issues • Exerts a positive influence on the environment in which business operates and helps prospective members grow their business • Promotes and encourages the pursuit of a high standard of business ethics • Disseminates information that is useful to the business fraternity • Creates opportunities for improving business skills • Extends business contacts locally, regionally and nationally, and allows individual business-people to share in the provincial and national business decision-making processes • Upholds the market economy and private enterprise system • Has committees which are ideal places for members of diverse interests to consolidate and unify their thinking as they work together- committees accurately sense the environment, process information and provide valuable guidance to the member • Holds functions and special events, allowing members to network and learn about interesting topics From the left: Hannes van Niekerk, Super Armature Winding; Martha van Zyl, Sanlam; Rustum Norman, Kimberley Ekapa Mining JV (back row); Pieta Serfontein, Hancor (front row); Samantha Lawrence, Duncan & Rothman; Riaan Vorster, GW Rugby Union and 1st Vice-President (back row); Jan van Vuuren, Bishops Lodge (back row); Charlene Zondagh, Halsted and 2nd Vice-President; Johan Theron, Standard Bank and NOCCI Treasurer; Jaime Goncalves, KEW.
