diagnosis of the economic delivery system
Diagnosis of the economic delivery system

Significant global and national economic trends are beyond our control, but, given its resources, assets and people, the Western Cape region should be performing better:

  • No shared economic vision and common agenda
  • Disjointed regional economic delivery system
  • Not achieving our full growth potential
  • Crisis of jobless growth and persistent poverty and inequality
  • Insufficiently competitive, productive and resilient as a region
  • Relatively weak regional business brand
what will the edp do
What will the EDP do?

The EDP will be a partnership-based organisation that will lead, coordinate and drive regional economic growth, development and inclusion by concentrating on:

  • Economic and market intelligence and monitoring to ensure evidence-led strategy and planning
  • Economic vision and strategy through building leadership and a common agenda
  • Business attraction, retention and expansion through building an improved business and investment climate
  • Creation of a single brand platform through a regional marketing alliance
  • Organisation of the economic system for optimum delivery through performance monitoring and on-going coordination of reform
what are the edp s prioritised outcomes
What are the EDP’s prioritised outcomes?
  • Building a shared economic vision and a common agenda
  • Shift to a more collaborative approach on the economy
  • Better economic and market intelligence, and evidence based planning
  • Incentivising business organisations’ collaboration
  • Closer working relationship with national government Ministries, Departments, state-owned enterprises and development finance institutions
  • Better coordination of economic effort between Province and municipal government
  • Single strategy towards contested activities and markets (trade, investment, visitors, events and festivals, conferences and expos, students, innovators, entrepreneurs, research, etc.)
  • Single brand platform for Western Cape and Cape Town

edp design criteria
EDP design criteria
  • The EDP will be established as a cross-sector partnership rather than a traditional government-owned agency or statutory body
  • The EDP can be characterised as an intermediary or relational organisation, which facilitates activities between government, business and other economic partners
  • The EDP will be primarily market-facing (understanding long-term demand trends) and industry-facing(understanding the needs of firms and investors)
  • The EDP will seek to organise a more coherent and effective system of economic delivery in the region between the partners, rather than substituting for the mandates of the partners
  • The EDP will be a relatively small, agile, creative, well-resourced leadership and coordinating body, attracting top talent
  • The EDP will be an independent non-partisan organisation
why are partnerships needed for economic development
Why are partnerships needed for economic development?


Economic development is a ‘vision driven’ activity that seeks to assess comparative and competitive strengths and opportunities, define a path into the future and to shape the behaviour of other actors, most of whom are not in the control of governments and public bodies.


Planning & Regulation

It is highly desirable that economic development is orchestrated as a partnership activity between public, private, and institutional sectors, with substantial vertical and horizontal collaboration on the public sector side

Development &


This fourth role is different… markets, geographies, timeframes, partners, financing, clients, stakeholders… and therefore requires additional expertise and different arrangements
