Gauteng to create new economic corridors

first_img24 February 2015The Gauteng government has announced interventions to change the space and structure of the province’s economy to help address unemployment, poverty and inequality.Speaking during the State of the Province Address on Monday, Premier David Makhura said these interventions were spatial reconfiguration; township economy revitalisation; and investment in infrastructure that the provincial government would undertake in partnership with municipalities and the private sector.Gauteng City Region’s space and economy would be configured into five development corridors that would have distinct industries and different comparative advantages, Makhura said.These are:Central Development Corridor, which will anchored around the City of Johannesburg as the hub of finance, services, ICT and pharmaceutical industries;Eastern Development Corridor, which will be anchored around the economy of the Ekurhuleni Metro as the hub of manufacturing, logistics and transport industries;Northern Development Corridor, which will anchored around Tshwane as South Africa’s administrative capital city and the hub of the automotive sector, research, development, innovation and the knowledge-based economy;Western Corridor, which encompasses the economy of the West Rand district and the creation of new industries, new economic nodes and new cities; andSouthern Corridor, which encompasses the economy of the Sedibeng district and the creation of new industries, new economic nodes and new cities.Makhura said the provincial government would “mobilise” more than R10-billion in public and private investments in the regeneration of the Joburg CBD as the seat of the provincial government.The Premier said Gauteng would work with national government and the City of Joburg to ensure that the Central Corridor became the home of the proposed Brics regional development bank.A plan to revitalise the townships of Kliptown and Alexandra was also under discussion with government and the City as “the two townships are in a terrible and sorry state of disrepair”, Makhura said.TransformationMakhura also announced that 140 000 housing units would be built in the next five years in the area to help change human settlement patterns.Together with the private sector and the City of Johannesburg, there were plans to transform the spatial landscape of the Central Corridor, which include:Masingita City, an integrated commercial and industrial hub, is a R3- billion private investment that is expected to create 15 500 jobs during its construction, which will begin in March.Rietfontein. With an investment of R20-billion, this will be a complete mixed-use node with more than 8 000 proposed residential units, including commercial property, distribution and warehousing, retail and education facilities.Waterfall City, the largest city to be built in post-apartheid South Africa. The estimated investment during construction is R71-billion, with an estimated 100 000 jobs to be created by the project.The Modderfontein development will inject R84-billion into the economy of the Gauteng City Region and is expected to create 150 000 jobs over the next 20 years.AerotropolisTurning to the Eastern Development Corridor, Makhura said 29 industrial initiatives under the banner of the Aerotropolis would be undertaken to revitalise manufacturing, aviation, transport and logistics industries linked to OR Tambo International Airport.“This will dramatically transform the current industrial structure of the economy of Ekurhuleni,” Makhura told the legislature.Other projects in the corridor will be the Tambo Springs Inland Port Development, with an estimated R7.5-billion investment over five years.The first phase of the Bus Rapid Transit System in Ekurhuleni would be operational by March next year, Makhura said, and more than 100 000 housing units would be built in the area over the next five years.SA’s biggest convention centreMakhura said Gauteng would be working with Tshwane to develop the West Capital development project in the Northern Corridor. This will include a student village, sport incubatory centre, retail and commercial components, inner city housing and health facilities.The African Gateway in the heart of Centurion would be a partnership with the private sector and will comprise South Africa’s largest convention centre, an hotel, residential, commercial and additional office space.TshwaneThe City of Tshwane would be investing R525-million to establish a business process outsourcing park in Hammanskraal, Makhura said. “The park will offer on-site training, technical support and incubators for SMMEs. The project is expected to create more than 1 000 jobs during construction and more than 1 000 indirect jobs.”Working with the private sector, Tshwane would also continue to rolling out free wi-fi within the City. To date, R150-million had already been invested in this initiative.Makhura said more than 160 000 houses would be built in the area.Green economyThe economy of the Western Corridor would focus on green and blue economy initiatives, tourism, agro-processing and logistics, said Makhura.“Lanseria Airport and Maropeng World Heritage Site will be the main anchors of the new city and new economy of the West Rand,” he said.The corridor would be positioned as a hub of agriculture and agroprocessing, and a public-private partnership would see the development of aquaculture projects, such as the prawn farming facility, the premier said.He said more than 160 000 houses are to be built in the area.DiversificationMakhura said the economy of the Southern Corridor needed to move from an “over- reliance on the steel industry” to one that included tourism and entertainment, agro- processing and logistics management.Among the projects would be the development of the new Vaal River City (hydropolis), with a private sector investment of more than R4-billion.Over the next five years, more than 120 000 houses in Sedibeng will be built.“Also in this corridor, we will continue to support the Gauteng Highlands development, a mixed-use development comprising industrial and residential space. This is a R40-billion investment aimed at creating 25 000 direct and indirect jobs,” said Makhura.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

It’s our camaraderie, we’re all close and we’re all focused, which bonds the team and makes us work, especially on the defensive end,” he said.Lyceum gave the fans a glimpse on how potent the team can be when locked in, shutting down the usually gritty Heavy Bombers.Perez noted that the performance was just the tip of the iceberg as he expects the Pirates to continue working hard in hopes of figuring in the Final Four race later in the season.ADVERTISEMENT Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ Pagasa: Kammuri now a typhoon, may enter PAR by weekend Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img El Nido residents told to vacate beach homes View comments For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.

first_imgThree of Jamaica’s outstanding historical collections have been given special awards by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), in recognition of the significance of the country’s heritage to the international community.The collections, ‘Protector of Immigrants’, ‘Registry of Slaves’, and ‘Silver Men of the Panama Canal’, contain records of Jamaica’s heritage during the period of slavery, Asiatic indentured immigration, and involvement in the construction of the Panama Canal. They have been incorporated in UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register, and have been awarded two special Plaques of Inscription.The plaques were unveiled Thursday, June 27, by Minister with Responsibility for Information, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer, during a ceremony at the offices of the Jamaica Archives and Records Department (JARD) in Spanish Town, St. Catherine.Delivering the keynote address, Senator Falconer, described the unveiling as a “proud moment for Jamaica”. She said incorporation of the collections on the prestigious UNESCO register is a “fine tribute to the hard working staff of the Jamaica Archives and Records Department”.“Our inclusion in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register is a significant testimony to the quality and importance of our archival information. I have no doubt that, in time, other aspects of our historical memory will also similarly be recognised,” the Minister said.She pointed out that the unveilings is a strong signal of the administration’s “commitment and intention to continue the excellent work of preserving and making Jamaica’s historical records “matters of world and personal significance”.“I want to thank UNESCO, the Regional Office for the Caribbean, the Jamaica National Commission for UNESCO, the Jamaica Archives (and Records Department) and all of those (stakeholders) who, over the years, have helped us to preserve and make accessible, such records of world significance,” the Minister said.In her remarks, Government Archivist, Claudette Thomas, welcomed the recognition accorded the collections, while expressing the hope that “Jamaicans will seek to become (more) aware of the documentary heritage of this country.”She also expressed gratitude to the Office of the Prime Minister, under whose purview JARD falls, UNESCO, the Local Memory of the World Registry Committee, Ministry of Youth and Culture, and the University of the West Indies (UWI), for their support in “facilitating the achievement of another significant milestone”.Jamaica National Commission for UNESCO Programme Manager, Dr. Maria Smith, said that the collections are “important to our individual and our collective identities.”She said the Commission remains “committed to its mandate of seeking to advance the nation through education, science, culture, communication, and information.”Chairperson of the Local UNESCO Memory of the World Committee, Winsome Harrison, in commending JARD, said the incorporation of the three listings on the Register from any single country is a “major accomplishment”, noting that “it is not an easy thing to get listed on the Memory of the World Register.”“I am very happy to be sharing in this very proud moment for JARD. And to the staff…I say do enjoy this feeling of accomplishment,” she said.Mayor of Spanish Town, Councillor Norman Scott, said the recognition accorded the three collections, places into context the relevance and importance of records and archives “which are major sources of information that form part of the cultural and documentary heritage of Jamaica.”The Jamaica Archives and Records Department is the sole government entity mandated to preserve Jamaica’s cultural and documentary heritage for posterity. Its main purpose is to preserve records of government which on paper and in electronic and audio/visual formats.Contact: Douglas McIntoshlast_img read more
