Anticipation Mounts as Coega Hopes to Win Big at Awards Coega nominated as a finalist at the prestigious BBQ Awards & SA Premier Business

In just a day and couple of hours, the Coega Development Corporation (CDC) will find out if they will walk away with a prestigious award, at this year’s SA’s Premier Business Awards taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg on 13 March 2019. For two years in succession, the CDC has been nominated for the Investor of the Year Award, the CDC is up against a hypercompetitive set of finalists running for the same award.

“This award aims to inspire the expansion of investment into the South African economy. It recognizes exertions and commitments by local and global companies to produce jobs and stimulate the economy through investment across all industry,” says Dr. Ayanda Vilakazi, CDC unit head brand, marketing & communications.

“We are honored to be considered for such a prestigious award and are optimistic with our chances in taking top honors at the end of the night,” adds Dr. Vilakazi.

Complimentary to the organizations recognition, is the announcement of the CDC’s Energy Sector Manager, Ms. Sandsiwe Ncemane who has been nominated in her individual capacity at the BBQ Awards - South Africa’s most prestigious and longest running black business awards; as a finalist for the Bentley South Africa Public Sector Visionary Award. She will know her fate on the 15th of March 2019, at the Emperors Palace in Johannesburg.

“The CDC wishes Ms. Ncemane all of the best as she continues to fly the CDC flag high,” adds Dr. Vilakazi.

The CDC’s nomination follows a slew of awards scooped by the organization last year, including the South African Premier Business Awards – Investor of the Year, Oliver Top Empowerment Awards- Business of the Year, 2018 Absa Supplier Development Award – Innovation as Leaders in Job Creation, African Infrastructure Project Developers Award - Regional Infrastructure Investment Initiative of the Year and the Vision 2030 - Infrastructure Development Award.

The Public Sector Visionary Award category recognizes individuals who have demonstrated a list of qualities, which commit to the advancement of excellence within the public sector. An individual who demonstrates such attributes within the public sector is key in driving projects, which facilitate and encourage innovation, creativity and integrity, which ultimately speaks to the overall commitment of achieving economic growth.

“We are waiting with bated breath to see the end result of both award ceremonies taking place this month”, says Dr. Vilakazi.

“The CDC culture breeds employees who strive as a collective in achieving the goals and objectives of the organization. It then becomes a great pleasure to be recognized for our never ending exertions which are in alignment with the CDC`s values and primary vision of improving the state of our economy,” concludes Dr. Vilakazi.
