Work

The aim of the study is to contribute towards the project area having a sustainable future, with the intention of influencing other business parks experiencing with similar problems. The way in which this is realised is by proposing some specific and eligible projects that can be carried out within the existing regulatory framework using the available resources and expertise, including available government support. These projects are part of a long-term vision and at the same time form the basis for the future perspective. In fact, these projects are the seeds with the potential for massive growth and replication, extending beyond the project area.

Based on these specific workable projects, advice was given on up-scaling and policy recommendations were formulated.
