The Coega Industrial Development Zone (Coega IDZ), located close to the bustling Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality, is South Africa’s foremost investment hotspot for industries with a global perspective.
Developed and managed by the Coega Development Corporation (CDC), this pioneering multi-billion Rand project aims to drive local and foreign direct investments in export-oriented industries - positioning South Africa as the hub for Southern African trade.
The Coega IDZ, while offering global competitiveness through world-class infrastructure, tax incentives, rebates and a duty-free zone, is purpose-built for manufacturing including beneficiation of export goods, investment and local socio-economic growth - skills development and job creation.
Adjoining this, the largest IDZ in the Southern Hemisphere, is the Port of Ngqura - a modern multi-user deepwater harbour developed by the National Ports Authority of SA as a gateway to global markets.
The Coega IDZ and the deepwater Port of Ngqura will remain catalysts for investment and local development.
