TIL Launches MEC Investment Networking Programme

Trade and Investment Limpopo (TIL) will, starting this week, host Honourable Pitsi Moloto, MEC for Economic Development, Environment and Tourism in a series of cross sector and multi district roadshows. The roadshows are aimed at primarily introducing the MEC to various key captains of industry and communities. Invited stakeholders include organised business structures in the agriculture, tourism and mining sectors, tourism associations as well as provincial business chambers.
The MEC’s Investor Network and information exchange sessions will further flag each district’s unique selling propositions and weaknesses, and in the process assist in determining the nature and detail of interventionist programmes to unlock investment bottlenecks and fast track Local Economic Development (LED). This will be done through interrogation of the various economic nodes per district, and a determination of how each node performs in the overall provincial trade and investment value chain.

The Roadshows are tentatively scheduled as follows:

  • 23 September: Mopani District, Phalaborwa
  • 6 October Lephalale
  • 20 October Bela Bela
  • 5 & 6 November Hoedspruit

    The MEC will, during the roadshows, also launch the Limpopo 1st Brand Campaign - a buy-local campaign aimed at encouraging prioritisation of Limpopo produced goods and services in procurement decisions. Says TIL Acting CEO, Julius Mapatha, “Limpopo’s agricultural produce, Limpopo diamonds, road-networks, platinum and coal, tourism offerings and goods contribute greatly to the South African, regional and intercontinental economies. I foresee and call for a day, soon, when all of our business ventures and output will embrace a rallying view: Limpopo First – in being proudly Limpopo in our business decisions.”
