The City of Ekurhuleni is found in the heart of the Gauteng Province in South Africa, and will become the country’s first Aerotropolis – an airport city where the layout, infrastructure, and economy is centered around an airport. Known as the ‘place of peace’ in Tsonga, Ekurhuleni is spread over 15.6% of Gauteng’s land, housing 5.4% of the country’s population and 29% of Gauteng’s population. Ekurhuleni is often referred to as ‘Africa’s workshop’ because it has the largest concentration in Africa of industry for the production of goods and commodities. Manufacturing in the City accounts for 32% of its total production output, and 26% of the GDP of Gauteng. Additionally, its well-developed network of roads, airports, rail lines, telephones, electricity grids and telecommunications support an established industrial and commercial complex. The City is home to the busiest international airport in Africa, OR Tambo International Airport which has more than 14 million passengers passing through its doors annually. All of this makes the City a magnet for businesses, trade, information exchanges and leisure activities.
