The cluster was established in 2012 and is a joint initiative with the NMU, the Nelson Mandela Bay municipality and the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber.
Port manager, Rajesh Dana, outlined its key objectives which include promoting development through the expansion of marine subsectors such as marine tourism and leisure.
“Enhancing enterprise development through the promotion of small businesses, BBBEE, women and the provision of funding [was also an objective],” Dana said.
It also sought to develop “human resources through education, skills development, training and knowledge development”.
Dana said the cluster was set out to align government, the private sector, academia, and civil society in its approach.
