South Africa Guateng 2013
Despite having the smallest land area of South Africa’s nine provinces at 16,548 sq km, Gauteng is the largest contributor to the national economy contributing around $85.33bn and growing at a rate of 3%. The tertiary sector is the main driver of the local economy and makes up 71% of Gauteng’s GDP, led by finance, real estate, and business and government services. While Gauteng accounts for most of South Africa’s economic output, with opportunity comes the challenge of population migration and urbanisation, placing a strain on the provision of public services and employment. This chapter contains interviews with Nomvula Paula Mokonyane, Gauteng Premier; and Siphiwe Ngwenya, Group CEO, Gauteng Growth and Development Agency (GGDA).
