JOHANNESBURG AND GAUTENG PROVINCE
Gauteng Province covers only 1.4% of South Africa’s landmass but contributes over a third of the national economy and an amazing 7% – 10% of the entire continent’s GDP. With world-class road, rail and air networks, the province operates as the main national distribution hub and a trading gateway into Sub Saharan Africa. Its capital, Johannesburg, is also the economic capital of the country and its biggest city, a single metropolitan municipality of over 1,645 square kilometres and a population of around 9 million. The province is highly urbanised and Industrialised, with all serious product distributors and around half of all food and beverage manufacturers and processors based there.
Johannesburg or “Jozi” as it’s informally known – is more than just the economic and distribution capital of the country and the nucleus of the food and drink industry. A modern, well run city with great infrastructure and a friendly and outgoing nature. You may wish to factor an extra day or two into your visit to AB7 to enjoy these and get to know the local culture a little better.
