Building partnerships to grow economy
COLLABORATIONS between all sectors of society and strong government leadership has seen the development of eThekwini’s post Covid-19 Economic Development Strategy aimed at creating a most caring and liveable City by 2030.

EThekwini Mayor Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda has pledged that the City will provide institutions and infrastructure that will enable the economy and society to flourish under challenging circumstances
of the global pandemic. A key and central pillar of the Economic Recovery Strategy will be the implementation of the City’s Radical Socio-Economic Transformation Programme. “Our new normal will require collaboration between all sectors of society and strong leadership by government.

In a society with deep social and economic divisions, neither social nor economic transformation
is possible without effective government intervention. Under this new normal, the City must provide
the institutions and infrastructure that enable the economy and society to flourish,” said Mayor Kaunda. As eThekwini embarks on the decisive implementation of the Economic Recovery Strategy, City leadership is charged with the responsibility to foster increased collaborations with strategic institutions. “These strategic institutions are National Treasury as the City aims to improve governance and financial performance outcomes. We will also collaborate with research and academic institutions to improve our understanding of the new normal and to build a youth driven skills revolution demanded thereof,” Mayor Kaunda explained.

Further collaborations will take place with private sector organisations to improve the speed and effectiveness of how the City deliver services. The City will continue to use platforms such as the CEO’s Forum to forge strong partnerships to attract more investment to the City and create much-needed jobs. The City’s plans are also at an advanced stage to launch the eThekwini Municipality Economic Council where a social pact between government, organised labour, business, academia, traditional leadership, interfaith and civil society will be signed by all stakeholders as a commitment to grow the City’s economy.
