Introduction

The South African Government, through the Presidency, is on record for its intensions to significantly intensify its focus on infrastructure development, spending the coming years on building rail, road, and other economic links in five regions in the county as well as the building of new universities, refurbishing hospitals and providing housing solutions to millions more South Africans.

Thus, infrastructure development and the provisioning of sustainable, affordable housing solutions remain key focus areas for South Africa as we work towards a more integrated and balanced socio-economic landscape. Achieving this objective can never be government’s responsibility alone. Private business needs to do its part to ensure it works closely with the authorities on the one hand, while developing and implementing own initiative projects on the other hand, to arrive at the common goal of a more competitive economy.

Promafco, as a property and infrastructure development company, is on course to contribute in a sustained and meaningful way towards these national imperatives.
