Celebrating the Journey of African Unity
Africa Day is taking place on 25th April, commemorating the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). South Africa became part of the organisation in 1994, following the first democratic election that saw the end to Apartheid.
As time went on, the OAU became the African Union because of the increasingly economic, rather than political, nature of the challenges faced by the continent.
Limpopo is an Integral part of South Africa, as much as it is of the African Continent.
Limpopo Province, the heartland of Southern Africa, is also known as the gateway to Africa due to its strategic location on the Great North Road to Zimbabwe, its links to the port of Maputo in Mozambique via the Phalaborwa Spatial Development initiative and Maputo corridor as well as its proximity to the Republic of Botswana.
In light of Africa Day, the Limpopo Province is working towards:
• Optimising the economic opportunities that exist between the province of Matebeleland and the City of Bulawayo (Zimbabwe), the province of Gaza (Mozambique) and the four regions (Oshana, Ohangwena, Omosati, Oshikoto) of Namibia; and facilitating the development of the Limpopo Spatial Development Initiative.
• Pursuing excellence in governance that would command investor confidence and attract investment.
• Promoting and encourage social and cultural development.
• Facilitating the resources.
• Promoting the province as a unique ecotourism destination with special reference to the emerging Transfrontier conversation area.
South Africa, and Africa as a whole, has made great strides towards overcoming oppression and building a better future for the continent.

Trade in the mining and agricultural products of Limpopo is supported by an excellent transport and logistics sector which received an additional boost with the approval by the South African national government of a new Special Economic Zone (SEZ), Musina Makhado, in the province. The rich soil of Limpopo produces great quantities of high quality minerals, fruit and vegetables. Investors with the ability to beneficiate minerals or add value to agricultural produce through agro-processing can take advantage of the favourable terms offered by the Special Economic Zone legislation.
