The Coega Development Corporation (CDC) recently won two award certificates at the recently held Exporters awards in Port Elizabeth. The awards were for IDC job creation and the best provider of service to exporters.

“This is an achievement that demonstrates our commitment to delivering world class services to investors and our broader client base. We are certainly proud of this achievement, especially in the context of the numerous recognitions the CDC has received in this year alone,” says Dr Ayanda Vilakazi, CDC Unit Head of Marketing and Communications.

The CDC has been recognised regularly over the past three years for its contribution to job creation on various projects. The organisation has created over 7 243 operational jobs within the Coega Special Economic Zone (SEZ) as of the end of the2016/17 Financial Year.

The current financial year has also seen the CDC receiving two other awards – the Infrastructure Development winner at the Vision 2030 Awards and the Best International Trade Marketing Specialist, South Africa, at the sub-Saharan Enterprise Awards 2017.

The CDC recently announced the creation of over 452 jobs as a result of the booming construction in the SEZ. The projects currently at various phases of construction include the Customs Control Area (CCA), which has created 90 jobs; the BAIC Ring Road Project, resulting in four additional jobs; the BAIC construction site in the SEZ’s automotive sector, creating 144 jobs; and the MM Engineering project in the energy sector, which has created 89 jobs. In addition, Kenako Construction has created 76 jobs and the work Osho Cement is doing in the metals sector has resulted in 49 jobs.

“We are certainly mindful of the socio economic-environment in which we are operating under. Therefore, every job created is critical in putting food on the table of many of our citizens who rely on the opportunities provided by the Coega SEZ through these projects,” say Dr Vilakazi.
