Eastern Cape should take up opportunities in agriculture
The Eastern Cape should take advantage of its strength in agriculture and become a leading agro-processing hub in South Africa, says Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Mzwandile Masina.
“It is important for everyone to note that the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) is there to create an enabling environment for all our aspirant entrepreneurs. Our mandate as defined in government’s National Development Plan is to ensure that we help South Africa industrialise, and that we stimulate activity in the agro-processing sector by helping create agro-parks and Industrial Development Zones,” he said on Friday, 25 September.
