The City of Tsh­wane Metropoli­tan Mu­nic­i­pal­ity

The so-called Big 5 of the an­i­mal king­dom are amongst the main lures to a re­gion that con­tin­ues to ex­pand, di­ver­sify and evolve as one of South Africa’s most in­flu­en­tial hubs

Tshwane Business Travel Guide - - News - Writer: Matthew Staff

sta­b­lished in its cur­rent guise for nigh-on 16 years, The City of Tsh­wane Metropoli­tan Mu­nic­i­pal­ity is jus­ti­fy­ing its for­mu­la­tion as a con­certed hub of in­no­va­tion, de­vel­op­ment, nat­u­ral preser­va­tion and busi­ness at­trac­tive­ness to be­come one of South Africa’s most ap­peal­ing re­gions.

Com­pris­ing 13 for­mer city and town coun­cils since its in­cep­tion on 5 De­cem­ber, 2000, a lat­ter ex­pan­sion in 2011 added fur­ther struc­ture to the Gaut­eng prov­ince, while strength­en­ing a Tsh­wane re­gion that con­tin­ues to put its money where its mouth is in developing all as­pects of life within its borders.

“Tsh­wane has 105 wards, 210 coun­cil­lors and about 2.5 mil­lion res­i­dents, and is di­vided into seven re­gions,” the Tsh­wane Tourism As­so­ci­a­tion states on its web­site. “It cov­ers 6,368 square kilo­me­tres of Gaut­eng’s 19,055 and stretches al­most 121 kilo­me­tres from east to west, and 108 kilo­me­tres from north to south; mak­ing it the third-largest city in the world in terms of land area, af­ter New York and Tokyo/Yoko­hama.

“Tsh­wane’s five-Year plan of ac­tion is to de­velop Tsh­wane into a lead­ing city where res­i­dents can en­joy a good qual­ity of life. The five-year pro­gramme fo­cuses on the chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties faced by the city and have five strate­gic ob­jec­tives.”

En­hanced pro­vi­sion of qual­ity ba­sic ser­vices and in­fra­struc­ture, a cleaner and safer sus­tain­able com­mu­nity, and im­proved gov­er­nance and fi­nan­cial vi­a­bil­ity com­prise just three of these; epit­o­mis­ing once again the am­bi­tions of the city in terms of its fu­ture promi­nence, and the in­evitable pos­i­tive ram­i­fi­ca­tions that this has in re­gards to tourism and the busi­ness travel sec­tor.
