As one of the key economic development initiatives in South Africa, we are mindful of the responsibility that we have as a company in ensuring that our operations don’t only impact on the East London IDZ as a corporate, but are also felt by our surrounding communities.As we step up our development initiatives, we are mindful of the need for us to make a meaningful contribution to the economic development of our country and positively changE the lives of ordinary South Africans.
As such a number of initiatives are in place to ensure that the ELIDZ extends its reach to beyond its physical location.  These initiatives include:

  • Attraction of new investment into the region

  • Skills Development
