Gauteng’s five economic development corridors
The vision for the Gauteng we want in 2030 will be implemented along five development corridors that have distinct industries and different comparative advantages. Each of the five corridors has distinct industries and comparative advantages. The Gauteng City Region is using land owned by government to earmark the locations of specific sectors and industries in the development corridors of our province as follows:
