The GGDA is actively involved in improving the province’s ability to attract and retain investments (FDI and DDI) and enhance export capability, resulting in economic growth that contributes to business success, job creation and poverty reduction.


We grow business

Our aim is to speedily develop the economy of Gauteng and create jobs.  We do investment promotion, facilitation of trade and investment, export expansion and support SMME development and growth.

We open possibilities

By bringing smart strategic opportunities to the table and supporting businesses through a modern and relevant economic infrastructure, we ensure Gauteng’s economy prospers.

We support business

Our drive and commitment in growing and supporting sustainable businesses that are firmly rooted in Gauteng, is only one of the many directives we are tasked with. We facilitate networks, help with administrative, legislative and financial advice, and are committed to taking your business further.
