YZERMYN – LOCAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

 

AAV, through the Yzermyn project, intends to play an active role in municipalities’ integrated development plans (IDPs) and local economic development (LED), focusing its efforts on Piet Retief and Dirkiesdorp (Mkhondo Municipality) and Wakkerstroom (Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme Municipality),. These towns and villages, and their surrounds, fall within local municipalities contained within the Gert Sibande District Municipality and all need housing, services and jobs.

The local economic development priorities of the Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme and Mkhondo local municipalities include:

  • job creation and poverty eradication;
  • service provision and infrastructure development; and
  • agriculture and tourism to boost economic growth.
