The Western Cape government has launched a bold strategy to double the size of the province’s agri-processing sector, adding up to a further 100 000 jobs to the economy.

Alan Winde, Minister of Economic Opportunities, said project Khulisa had identified agri-processing as a key sector for the province.

Tourism alongside oil and gas are the Western Cape’s other priority sectors for the next five years.

Spokesperson to Winde, Bronwynne Jooste explained that the Project include increasing exporting wine and brandy to China and Angola.

 The project will also make sure to improve local capacity to process agricultural produce.

China has been noted as the fastest growing emerging market for wine, this would be the best time to tap into this market, Jooste concluded.
