To be the benchmark for SEZs in South Africa whilst contributing to the growth of the Automotive Sector with the objective of being a major creator of new businesses and contributor to employment, transformation and socio-economic development.
To be a catalyst for employment, transformation and socio-economic development and industry growth by being a node attracting automotive suppliers and automotive-related manufacturers, assemblers and supporting services.
The automotive sector has been one of the most visible sectors receiving foreign investments, making South Africa the largest diversified manufacturing base in the region. As the largest manufacturing sector, vehicle and component production accounted for 27,6% of South Africa’s manufacturing output in 2019, while the broader automotive industry’s contribution to the GDP stood at 6,4%. The automotive industry, therefore, represents an increasingly important strategic and catalytic role in the overall South African economy by impacting directly on many important aspects, such as contribution to GDP, employment, skills development, economic linkages, technology, and innovation.
Favourable government incentives, investor support and value-added services have also enabled the TASEZ to secure investors.
