The DA’s Shadow Minister of Small Business Development, Toby Chance MP, and DA Spokesperson on Economic Development in the City of Johannesburg, Cllr Martin Louw, will tomorrow conduct an oversight visit to two township industrial parks in the City of Johannesburg, followed by a press briefing.
Township industrial parks have the potential to create jobs and address racially based economic exclusion, and thus should be prioritised by government. However, a long history of under-investment and neglect has left them in a dire state.
The DA will announce its action plan in this regard.
The briefing will take place as follows:
Date: Monday, 13 April 2015
Venue: Pennyville Industrial Park, 114 New Canada Road, Pennyville, Johannesburg (near to the New Canada train station)
There will opportunities for photos and interviews
