The Coega Development Corporation (CDC) has recently been nominated for the Vision 2030 Infrastructure Development Award taking place on the 21st of June 2018 at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg.
The CDC’s nomination is the fifth since the beginning of the year in various prestigious awards including the South African Premier Business Awards – Investor of the Year, Oliver Top Empowerment Awards- Business of the Year, 2018 Absa Supplier Development Award – Innovation as Leaders in Job Creation and the African Infrastructure Project Developers Award- Regional Infrastructure Investment Initiative of the Year.
“Our nomination is a recognition of the hard work we consistently put in as the CDC. It also speaks loudly on the caliber of the CDC’s drive to become the leading catalyst for the championing of socio-economic growth,” says Dr Ayanda Vilakazi, Unit Head: Marketing, Brand and Communications.
The Infrastructure Development Award recognizes various organisations involved as innovative, sustainable and efficiency-enhancing infrastructure development. The scope of the award includes roads and railways, ports, energy, ICT, water and sanitation, housing, access to basic services, healthcare and education.
Late last month, the CDC was highly commended by the 2018 Absa Business Day Supplier Development Awards focusing on supplier development.
“Being highly commended by such prestigious awards signifies that the organization understands the importance of the whole economic and social ecosystem where small businesses and large corporates thrive and work together holistically,” concludes Unathi Maholwana, CDC SMME Programme Manager.
