Gauteng City Region Brief
Following the first South Africa democratic elections in 1994 the Gauteng province has taken steps to better organise itself to govern and administer the changing and growing cosmopolitan society. It was the only province in South Africa to develop and implement an economic strategy immediately after 1994 to leverage off the existing manufacturing base and to diversify economic activity in the province to include the information communications technology sector. The province has taken up the challenges of demographic changes and migration related issues as well as the complex settlement patterns that characterises urbanisation.
