The Business End
“As the administrative seat of Government and hosting a number of Embassies, City of Tshwane has proven to be a leader on the African continent in providing affordable industrial sites, various industries, office space, education and research facilities,” Tswhane Tourism Association states.
As such, the area has become a melting pot of research, development, industry, education and commerce; indicative of the attractiveness it now boasts from a business perspective.
Once again, there are also concerted plans for future growth in place too, with the most recent aims including accelerated growth; enhanced contributions to the wider provincial economic growth target; a reduction in unemployment by as much as 50 percent; a bridging of the gap between first and second economies; and an improved attitude towards equality across genders, age and disabilities. Again, the culmination of these considerations not only represent the ethos of a city very much in demand, but point towards a sense of sustainability and longevity for business success in the years to come; making it a lucrative proposition for foreign direct investment, and an increasingly
likely port of call of executives seeking new opportunities on the continent.
As such, peripheral sectors including hospitality and transport have had to be addressed substantially, the former in particular enjoying a rapid shunt into becoming a zone for big brands and five-star luxury.
The newly renovated Faircity Roodevallei Hotel situated on the edge of the Roodeplaat Dam is one such example, with R6 million worth of investment compounding its wide variety of accommodation able to host up to 250 delegates in the most calm and tranquil of settings.
Similarly, the revamped Leriba Hotel & Spa embraces all that is naturally good about Tshwane, and its 20 luxury en-suite rooms on the banks of the Hennops River in Centurion offer the perfect retreat away from the boardroom.
