The North West Province will host the first North West Trade & Investment Conference taking place at Pilanesberg on 14 March 2019.
The Investment Conference will be held under the theme “Rebuilding the province through the promotion of Trade and Infrastructure Investment” and provide a platform to showcase growth and investment prospects in an economy with vast potential.
The main aims of the conference are to action and consolidate decisions, pledges and commitments that were made at the National Conference and to implement those that are relevant for the province.
Key objectives of the conference are, therefore:
- To expose investors to investment and trade opportunities in the North West Province.
- To provide a platform for business to engage and create linkages that will grow the business sector further to provide the much-needed jobs in the province.
- To engage business to partner with government in the delivery on its mandate of reducing unemployment, eradicating poverty and creating jobs
As with the National Investment Conference, this opportunity will be used to engage with investors on trade and investment opportunities in the Province, provide macro and microeconomic linkages, engage on private-public partnerships and unlock the latent potential and innovative spirit of the North West economy.
As a Province with a host of unique comparative advantages as an investment destination and trade partner, the Conference aims to expose domestic and international business to a unique investment case, and portfolio of investment projects in several sectors. The Investment Conference is, therefore, a platform where information exchange on actual opportunities between government, local and international business will take place.
The focus will be on areas of trade to stimulate economic growth and development, quality infrastructure to support growth, and investment to advance a growing economy which is inclusive, diversified and competitive.
Furthermore, the Conference aims to be a showcase of unique features, strengths, competitiveness, and attractiveness of the North West as an investment destination and trade partner.
Please note: Attendance to the North West Investment Conference is per invite only.
