Our main intent is followed through the:

  • Pro-active communication and marketing of the city’s large investment projects and core strategies;

  • Attraction, support and facilitation for prospective foreign investors in Durban;
  • Improvement in the investment and economic development environment, in partnership with the national, provincial, city and business authorities.

In Durban we have a city rich in investment opportunities. Durban is a ‘smart’ city, maximising fibre-optics and broadband; one which boasts a world-class manufacturing sector with one of the highest export propensities, coupled with the second largest industrial concentration in South Africa. Situated on the eastern seaboard of South Africa, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal has direct access to both the Indian and Pacific Ocean rims. The region’s strategic geographical position on world trade routes provides access to major global markets, such as the Americas, Europe and the East, as well as the whole of Africa. Here in Durban is Africa’s busiest port, the continent’s top conferencing city and South Africa’s leading sports and tourist destination. But it is so much more… Durban is the global business gateway to South Africa, Africa and the world.
