The IDC’s goal is to unlock infrastructure development to create an environment that helps grow South Africa’s economy.
To that end, investments will be made to achieve the following:
- Boost the energy infrastructure by providing local developers with opportunities in the energy sector and particularly supporting those projects that free up energy consumption and take pressure off the power grid. The IDC seek to optimising energy efficiency interventions and finding alternative energy sources.
- Develop bio-fuels: by developing the biofuels sector on a commercial scale. This sector is a potential source of new significant employment and economic development, particularly for agriculture in rural areas.
- Support transport networks, including road, rail and ports to ensure a sound logistics network that will allow local industries to be competitive and be able to access new markets/suppliers in the rest of Africa.
- Increase and extend broadband coverage in order to lower the cost of business and boost trade and business.
