The 2020/21 edition of Northern Cape Business is the 10th issue of this highly successful publication that has, since its launch in 2009, established itself as the premier business and investment guide for the Northern Cape Province. 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 province. In addition to comprehensive overviews of sectors of the economy, this publication has a particular focus on specific, packaged, investment opportunities. These include plans for the establishment of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) within the province, which have specific incentives designed to make investment into the Northern Cape even more attractive. The hi-tech exploits of astronomers and engineers in search of a landspeed record are the focus of an article on engineering sector while the rapidly expanding solar energy sector which continues to attract significant capital is discussed in some detail.

Project background Poultry farming has low barriers to entry and is therefore a good response to dealing with food security. A poultryprocessing facility would give small-scale farmers a chance to create more value for their chickens. Project focus Sector Wollastonite mining Investment value ±R100-million Job creation 40 (direct & indirect/ construction phase) Project location Keimoes is about halfway between Upington and Kakamas in the Z F Mgcawu District Municipality. Project background Wollastonite is a mineral that has several industrial applications. The mining sector in the Northern Cape is well-established with good infrastructure and there are strong support systems for investors. Wollastonite has applications in plastics, as a paint filler and in ceramics, among other things. Project focus Sector Agri-processing and farming Investment value ±R20-million Job creation 50 (direct & indirect/ construction phase) Project location Kakamas is located on the banks of the Orange River on the N14 highway that connects Springbok with the interior. Kakamas falls under the Z F Mgcawu District Municipality. Project background Small-scale farmers and producers are often restricted in their growth through not gaining good value for their products because they are sold in their raw state. The Ecksteenskuil Raisin Co-operative in Kakamas seeks to change that by engaging in processing to add value to their raisins.
