KwaZulu-Natal Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs unveils investment opportunities

Kzn unveils investment opportunities which will create 410 00 permanent and 800 000 temporal jobs.

More than R200 billion will be pumped into the economy of KwaZulu-Natal in the next few years, thanks to the portfolio of investment opportunities unveiled by the MEC for Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs in KwaZulu-Natal, Mr Sihle Zikalala today.

Addressing captains of industry during the investment seminar held in Durban, Mr Zikalala said KwaZulu-Natal had packaged a list of 25 projects worth more than R200 billion as part of contribution to the national investment drive launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa recently.

“All these projects, development sites have already been secured and are in the process of implementation, including the acquisition of funding and undertaking of feasibility studies,”

The opportunities cover a range of sectors from agro-processing, film & media productions, manufacturing, logistics, medical, property development and tourism, he added.  The MEC said the projects would benefit people in all corners of KwaZulu-Natal.

“We are excited that the investment opportunities which we have unveiled today will create 800 000 temporary jobs during the construction and development phase of the projects and a further 410 000 permanent jobs in the short to long term.”

The investments were spread across the province including KwaDukuza, eThekwini, Mandeni, uMuziwabantu and uMhlathuze municipalities, confirmed Zikalala. 

KwaZulu-Natal will conduct an annual review of the opportunities to assess progress on implementation and as well as add on new developments.

The list of investment opportunities were handed over to Ms Phumzile Langeni, the Special Investment Envoy to the President. They will be combined with those of other provinces in a bucket of initiatives which will help South Africa to achieve its target of securing 100 billion US Dollars of new investments over five years.

Mr Zikalala further said the list of investment opportunities had been compiled at a time when there is growing enthusiasm for local and international companies to invest in the province - adding that KwaZulu-Natal’s two special economic zones had attracted billions of rand worth of investments destined to create hundreds of jobs.

“The Dube Trade Port is commencing with Phase Two which will create more industrial space for investors as Phase One is already fully occupied. At the same time the Richards Bay Industrial Development Zone is playing a crucial role in investment attraction.”

Speaking during the seminar, Langeni said KwaZulu-Natal’s projects would help the central government to achieve its target of attracting $100 billion worth of investments into the South African economy in the next five years.

 “We commend the province for responding positively to the President’s call to put more efforts in attracting investments sothat we can grow the economy and create jobs. We are happy that the projects that have been unveiled today will create thousands of jobs.”

Global Growth Is Stabilizing for the First Time in Three Years

But 80% of world population will experience slower growth than in pre-COVID decade

WASHINGTON, June 11, 2024 — The global economy is expected to stabilize for the first time in three years in 2024—but at a level that is weak by recent historical standards, according to the World Bank’s latest Global Economic Prospects report.

Global growth is projected to hold steady at 2.6% in 2024 before edging up to an average of 2.7% in 2025-26. That is well below the 3.1% average in the decade before COVID-19. The forecast implies that over the course of 2024-26 countries that collectively account for more than 80% of the world’s population and global GDP would still be growing more slowly than they did in the decade before COVID-19.

Overall, developing economies are projected to grow 4% on average over 2024-25, slightly slower than in 2023. Growth in low-income economies is expected to accelerate to 5% in 2024 from 3.8% in 2023. However, the forecasts for 2024 growth reflect downgrades in three out of every four low-income economies since January. In advanced economies, growth is set to remain steady at 1.5% in 2024 before rising to 1.7% in 2025.

“Four years after the upheavals caused by the pandemic, conflicts, inflation, and monetary tightening, it appears that global economic growth is steadying,” said Indermit Gill, the World Bank Group’s Chief Economist and Senior Vice President. “ However, growth is at lower levels than before 2020. Prospects for the world’s poorest economies are even more worrisome. They face punishing levels of debt service, constricting trade possibilities, and costly climate events. Developing economies will have to find ways to encourage private investment, reduce public debt, and improve education, health, and basic infrastructure. The poorest among them—especially the 75 countries eligible for concessional assistance from the International Development Association—will not be able to do this without international support.”

This year, one in four developing economies is expected to remain poorer than it was on the eve of the pandemic in 2019. This proportion is twice as high for countries in fragile- and conflict-affected situations. Moreover, the income gap between developing economies and advanced economies is set to widen in nearly half of developing economies over 2020-24 —the highest share since the 1990s. Per capita income in these economies—an important indicator of living standards—is expected to grow by 3.0% on average through 2026, well below the average of 3.8% in the decade before COVID-19.

Global inflation is expected to moderate to 3.5% in 2024 and 2.9% in 2025, but the pace of decline is slower than was projected just six months ago. Many central banks, as a result, are expected to remain cautious in lowering policy interest rates. Global interest rates are likely to remain high by the standards of recent decades—averaging about 4% over 2025-26, roughly double the 2000-19 average.

“Although food and energy prices have moderated across the world, core inflation remains relatively high—and could stay that way,” said Ayhan Kose, the World Bank’s Deputy Chief Economist and Director of the Prospects Group . “That could prompt central banks in major advanced economies to delay interest-rate cuts. An environment of ‘higher-for-longer’ rates would mean tighter global financial conditions and much weaker growth in developing economies.”

The latest Global Economic Prospects report also features two analytical chapters of topical importance. The first outlines how public investment can be used to accelerate private investment and promote economic growth. It finds that public investment growth in developing economies has halved since the global financial crisis, dropping to an annual average of 5% in the past decade. Yet public investment can be a powerful policy lever. For developing economies with ample fiscal space and efficient government spending practices, scaling up public investment by 1% of GDP can increase the level of output by up to 1.6% over the medium term.

The second analytical chapter explores why small states—those with a population of around 1.5 million or less—suffer chronic fiscal difficulties. Two-fifths of the 35 developing economies that are small states are at high risk of debt distress or already in it. That’s roughly twice the share for other developing economies. Comprehensive reforms are needed to address the fiscal challenges of small states. Revenues could be drawn from a more stable and secure tax base. Spending efficiency could be improved —especially in health, education, and infrastructure. Fiscal frameworks could be adopted to manage the higher frequency of natural disasters and other shocks. Targeted and coordinated global policies can also help put these countries on a more sustainable fiscal path.

Major changes in KZN government entities

KZN Tourism and the KZN Film Commission have also been merged to form the KwaZulu-Natal Tourism and Film Authority (KZNTAFA).

Newly-appointed KwaZulu-Natal Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs (EDTEA) MEC Musa Zondi. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Newly-appointed IFP Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs (EDTEA) MEC Musa Zondi has reconfigured several provincial state entities, merging the KZN Liquor Authority with the KZN Gaming and Betting Board.

According to department spokesperson Angel Sibisi, the two merged entities will now be called the KwaZulu-Natal Economic Regulatory Authority (KZNERA).

This strategic initiative aims to streamline operations, enhance service delivery, eliminate duplications, and create efficiencies within EDTEA. This move is expected to improve the delivery of services in a cost-effective manner and foster economic growth within the province.

“The legislative framework for these changes was approved by the legislature in the sixth administration and published in the Government Gazette on May 24, 2024,” said Sibisi.

According to Sibisi, KZNERA will be chaired by Mbali Myeni, with Portia Baloyi appointed as the interim CEO. KZNTAFA will be chaired by Professor Thandi Nzama, while Sibusiso Gumbi has been appointed interim CEO.

The KwaZulu-Natal Growth Fund Agency (KZNGFA) has now been listed under the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA).

“KZNGFA aims to support sustainable growth by financing private sector projects that drive economic success, stimulate job creation, provide broad-based black economic empowerment (BBBEE), and reduce inequality,” Sibisi said.

Former director-general in the Presidency Cassius Lubisi will chair KZNGFA, while Tshidi Ikaneng has been appointed as the interim CEO.

The Moses Kotane Research Institute (MKRI), also approved for listing under the PFMA, will be chaired by Thinta Cibane, with advocate Thembelihle Mapipa appointed as the MKRI’s interim CEO.

Zondi said the appointments were part of the department’s efforts to ensure that the entities deliver in accordance with their mandates.

“Each appointee brings a wealth of expertise and leadership, positioning these entities for success in their respective fields,” said Zondi.

Meet the new KZN Cabinet

D urban — KwaZulu-Natal Premier Thami Ntuli this week announced the new Members of the Executive Council (MEC) who are entrusted with the task of rebuilding the province.

This is who the new MECs are:

REVEREND MUSA ZONDI (IFP)

Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism

The IFP senior made a return to mainstream politics late last year when he became an MPL after years in the political wilderness. A staunch critic of government over the years, Rev Zondi takes over a portfolio that is regarded as the key driver of investment and economic growth within the province.

He is expected to provide leadership that would ensure that entities such as the KZN Growth Fund, Dube Trade Port Corporation and Ezemvelo draw investment and drive job creation. Additionally Zondi would have to make sure that the funding entities provide opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs, and not just those who are politically connected.

THULASIZWE BUTHELEZI (IFP)

Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs

Buthelezi, who vacated his position as Zululand District mayor a few weeks ago, takes over a portfolio that brings him back to local government.

His department is expected to provide support to municipalities, many of which are in distress. The challenges of crumbling infrastructure and other service delivery challenges in municipalities such as eThekwini and Msunduzi will be on his shoulders, as local government is regarded as one of the key pillars of economic development.

Buthelezi would need to ensure that his department lives up to expectation of providing both monitoring and support to facilitate the revival of this critical sphere. Part of this will be to ensure that municipalities have adequate capacity and are equally financially viable.

The recent disasters have also underlined the importance for district municipalities to be properly equipped to provide rapid assistance to communities when in need. This is one of the areas that the MEC needs to attend to swiftly. Aside from this, the MEC has to navigate the relationship between government and traditional leaders.

THEMBENI MADLOPHA-MTHETHWA (IFP)

Agriculture and Rural Development

The former IFP Jozini mayor takes over the portfolio that has always been viewed as one the possible drivers for economic growth in the province, but has fallen short of expectation.

KZN is renowned for having huge acres of land that are lying unused owing to a combination of lack of enthusiasm for farming and inadequate support for those in the trade.

As someone who has led a rural municipality, Madlopha-Mthethwa would need to ensure that rural farmers are supported both with implements and skills that would enable them to be self-sustainable.

SIBONISO DUMA (ANC)

Transport and Human Settlements

Having served as the MEC for Economic Development and Tourism, Duma faces a different set of challenges under the new portfolio.

The 2022 floods caused severe damage in the province, destroying bridges, houses and roads in many communities – and it would be Duma’s job to fix this.

Further, he would need to address the issue of urbanisation which has led to the mushrooming of shacks in Durban and Pietermaritzburg, because there are not enough houses to meet the needs. Duma, who is the ANC KZN chairperson, and his team would also have to ensure that new roads are constructed and current ones are properly maintained, as they are key to the movement of people and goods.

While transport has been merged with safety and security since 2004, Ntuli has taken the safety function to the Premier’s office

NOMAGUGU SIMELANE (ANC)

The ANC KZN deputy chairperson is the only one to have retained her portfolio from the previous administration and knows the department’s challenges much like the back of her hand.

The recent demonstration by unemployed doctors and healthcare workers during President Cyril Ramaphosa’s campaign trail in Ashdown, Pietermaritzburg, are part of the challenges that continue to face the department. According to the 2024/25 budget delivered in March, the department was allocated R53.8 billion – the second-largest budget allocation after education – but continues to battle because of its size.

Complaints of understaffing at many hospitals, and lack of equipment and specialists have been a constant feature for the department over the years, and Simelane would need to address this. She would also have to oversee planning for the next step of the National Health Insurance, which has been recently signed into law.

SIPHO HLOMUKA (ANC)

Hlomuka makes a return to the executive after his debut as a Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC under then-premier Sihle Zikalala and later as Transport and Community Safety MEC under then-premier Nomusa Dube-Ncube.

The department has the largest budget allocation of R63bn, but among its main challenges is being resourced. This is because nearly two-thirds of its budget goes to the compensation of employees. The demand for schools and classrooms and schools in many parts of the province present an additional problem for the MEC.

Hlomuka would also need to ensure that the National School Nutrition Programme functions properly, as it has been demonstrated that things can go wrong, leaving thousands of pupils who rely on the daily meals hungry.

FRANCOIS RODGERS (DA)

Having been a member of the finance portfolio committee since his arrival to the KZN Legislature, one of Rodgers’ main tasks would be to ensure that every rand is accounted for.

While his department does not have a massive budget, his new task as Finance MEC would be to properly allocate funds to various departments, and that each one of them spends within their means to avoid going bust and having to ask for the intervention of the National Treasury.

MARTIN MEYER (DA)

Public Works

A surprise appointment to the Cabinet for many, Meyer is the former eThekwini councillor who served in different capacities, among them Human Settlements and Infrastructure. Aside from ensuring that government buildings are properly maintained, Meyer’s task would be to make sure that government properties are accounted for, and those that are ready for sale are disposed off.

There have been arguments in some sections that many buildings were idle while departments sought private rental space when buildings could be fixed and rental money saved and channelled for other uses.

MBALI SHINGA (NFP)

Social Development

Shinga, whose party, the NFP, played the kingmaker role in forming the provincial government of unity, has been rewarded with the portfolio that has been largely associated with pensions and other government grants in the past, but has a greater role to play.

One of KZN’s main challenges is drug addiction by the youth, a social ill which many believe demands an integrated approach from the government.
