President Zuma to launch the KwaZulu-Natal InvestSA One Stop Shop

President Jacob Zuma will on Saturday, 18 November 2017, launch the KwaZulu-Natal InvestSA One Stop Shop in Durban which aims to provide strategic guidance, reduce regulatory inefficiencies, and reduce red tape for all investors looking to invest in the province of KwaZulu-Natal.

During the launch of the National InvestSA One Stop Shop in March 2017, President Zuma announced that provincial InvestSA One Stop offices would be opened in KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng and the Western Cape provinces. The President launched the Western Cape One Stop Shop in September 2017 and other provinces will open their One Stop Shops over a period of three years in support of the Special Economic Zones programme.

The establishment of the InvestSA One Stop Shop initiative is one of the government’s efforts to improve the business environment by reducing the bureaucratic red tape, lowering the cost of doing business and improving the ease of doing business in South Africa in order to create a sustainable and competitive economy.

The KwaZulu-Natal One Stop Shop, which is housed at the Trade and Investment KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, will provide services from SARS, CIPC, Water Affairs, Home Affairs, Trade and Industry and other regulatory services. It will further include representatives from the South African Local Government Association (SALGA), uMsunduzi and uMhlathuze Local Municipalities as well as eThekwini Metro.

The Dube TradePort (DTP), one of the Special Economic Zones in the province that was set up to promote local and international trade, will work together with the one in Richards Bay.
