KwaZulu-Natal is South Africa’s second largest provincial economy, contributing on average 16.0% to the country’s GDP.

The province is home to two of Africa’s busiest and largest ports, Durban and Richards Bay.

It also boasts the third highest export propensity and the second highest level of industrialisation in the country. Situated on the eastern seaboard of South Africa, the province of KwaZulu-Natal has direct access to both
the Indian and Pacific Ocean rims.

The region’s strategic geographical position on world trade routes provides effortless access to major global markets, such as South America, Europe and the Far East.

KwaZulu-Natal’s manufacturing sector is
the second largest in the country, after Gauteng Province.

The Eastern Cape economy is becoming increasingly modern and export-oriented, with great potential for growth of
existing industries and the establishment of new industries. Its geographic location, quality sea and airports, an abundance of natural resources and world-class infrastructure bodes particularly well for the growth of export-oriented industries.

The annual Manufacturing Indaba Eastern Cape roadshow brings together provincial manufacturers and businesses to explore growth opportunities, find out about the latest manufacturing incentives and trends, and provide a platform for networking and collaboration

Manufacturing East Africa is borne from the success of the Manufacturing Indaba
conference & exhibition.

There has been a call from the South African manufacturers to expand and sell their products and services into Africa and to explore business partnerships and synergies with a focus towards Regional Integration.

Manufacturing remains a driver of economic prosperity in advanced economies.

The global environment in which the East African manufacturing sector develops going forward will be greatly different compared to that in which manufacturing sectors developed elsewhere in the past.

The objective of this event is to assess major opportunities and constraints
for the development of the East African manufacturing sector, to look at suitable examples from other regions, and draw lessons to enhance the sector’s contribution to the region’s economic transformation.
