While reflecting on the past ten years in business, Zahra and I have spent the last 6 months of lockdown reengineering our short term growth plans to expand our core focus to infrastructure projects aligned to the National Development Plan and the new Infrastructure Investment Plan.
National Treasury and The Development Bank of South Africa (DBSA) entered into a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) signed on 17 August 2020 in respect of the DBSA’s mandate to establish and manage the Infrastructure Fund which is a R100 billion commitment for seed funding over the next 10years with SA’s infrastructure plans ticking north of R1.5 trillion.
The focus areas for infrastructure investment include the prioritization of “network industries”;
- water and sanitation,
- information communication technology.
Other critical social infrastructure includes:
- human settlements which cover social housing and student accommodation
- health and education industries.
Over the next 10 years, Uzenzele will work to support government’s infrastructure plans by assisting project owners prepare and facilitate finance for credible, value-for-money and sustainable infrastructure projects which have the potential to increase the capacity of the economy, create short and long term jobs and prosperity.
If you are a credible project owner within these industries and sectors, contact us and together we can rebuild South Africa in the post COVID-19 world.
