The 2018 edition of Western Cape Business is the 11th issue of this highly successful publication that, since its launch in 2005, has established itself as the premier business and investment guide for the Western Cape. In addition to the regular articles providing insight into each of the key economic sectors of the province, there are special features on the growth of tourism (spurred by an innovative programme designed to create more direct flights to Cape Town), medical technology as a growth sector and the pursuit of excellence that drives the Cape Winemakers Guild. The journal contains a message from Alan Winde, Minister of Economic Opportunities, and contributions from significant business leaders from Accelerate Cape Town, the Cape Chamber of Commerce and the Western Cape Business Opportunities Forum. An interview with Tim Harris, Wesgro’s CEO, reveals some of the recipe for the province’s economic success. Updated information on the Western 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 Key facts and figures Year established: The College of Cape Town is the oldest Technical and Vocational Education and Training institution in South Africa with a proud history dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. As the name suggests, we are based in Cape Town. Four former technical colleges, Athlone College, Cape College, Sivuyile College and Western Province Technical College, were officially merged on 1 February 2002 to become the College of Cape Town. This arose from a rationalisation in TVET colleges in which some 150 colleges around the country were reduced to 50.
