Ekurhuleni set to soar
The location of Ekurhuleni as an arrival city and meeting point of South Africans and citizens of the world from all walks of life through OR Tambo Airport is a key strength and central characteristic of the city.
In order to achieve the imperative of economic transformation the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality has adopted the Ekurhuleni Aerotropolis programme as an overarching flagship strategy to drive its radical economic development and transformation agenda.
According to Dr John Kasarda, director of the Center of Air Commerce at the University of North Carolica’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, an aerotropolis as an airport city at its core and is surrounded by clusters of industry related enterprises that gain a competitive advantage by utilising the synergistic capabilities of its location.
