Gauteng to host a Roundtable on the Auto sector’s vision for New Energy Vehicles

In the lead-up to the NAACAM Show 2023, the Tshwane Economic Development Agency (TEDA), in collaboration with the Gauteng Department of Economic Development, its implementation arm, the Gauteng Growth and Development Agency (GGDA) and the Automotive Industry Development Centre (AIDC), a subsidiary of the GGDA, will host a roundtable discussion on the Gauteng Northern Corridor’s Development, focusing on the automotive sector and New Energy Vehicles (NEVs).

With the automotive industry evolving, market expansion and access have become crucial for the vehicle manufacturing sector. Enabling market expansion and improving market access requires strategic planning and implementation. One way to achieve this is by developing partnerships and collaborations with companies and industry stakeholders.

This event brings together industry bodies and experts, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), component manufacturers, and government stakeholders to discuss and establish precise requirements that will enable the Gauteng Province to develop a long-term strategy to place the Province and the City of Tshwane at the forefront of advanced vehicle and vehicle component manufacturing.

Some of the critical questions to be answered at the event include:

  • What are the public and private sector’s plans to drive regional investment?
  • What strategies do industry stakeholders have for developing and investing in NEVs and expanding the fledgling electric supply chain?
  • How will the Gauteng Province drive the creation of sustainable jobs, address the skills gap and transformation of the Automotive sector and the transition towards cleaner fuel technologies?

The Auto Roundtable will be held as follows:

Date: 29 June 2023  

Time: 08h00 – 16h00

Venue: Exclusive to invited guests

Members of the media are invited to provide coverage for the event.
