Local Economic Development

The Mayor also welcomed the new Economic Development & Planning General Manager "we have also from the beginning of this quarter (January to March) managed to appoint the General Manager for Economic Development & Planning, Ms Thabiso Ntsalla who has once worked for this municipality."

Under the Local Economic Development, we have set aside a budget of R 350 000 for Grant in Aid Funding. This is the 100% grant fund for co-operatives and SMMEs in Matatiele who lodge their innovative business plans for funding opportunities so as to support the economic growth of Matatiele. We have further considered our SMMEs under a programme called SMMEs Development of Co-operatives where a budget of R550 000 has been set aside. This one talks to training of local cooperatives and local contractors. The objective of pursuing this target nurture our local youth and women by upskilling them, to be competitive entrepreneurs, and to be attractive to investors.
