:We are proud to be at the centre of one of the country’s most progressive cities. Here, industry and the tourism environment exist as we strive for responsible growth. Not only do we endeavor to provide all the infrastructure required by locally-based global companies, we also look to promote emerging businesses and entrepreneurs. Our focus is on growth among all sectors, job creation and the best possible standard of living for all our people. The Port of Richards Bay is a driver for our huge district economy and a major national earner of foreign exchange. The harbor is the largest in the country handling more bulk products than all our other ports, involving imports of products needed for industry and exports of coal. The City, astute planning has allowed for continuous and methodical growth. The city still has much land and capacities to offer potential investors, especially in collaboration with the Industrial Development Zone. We are a local government that is able to convert Opportunities into Reality.
