It’s getting easier to do business in the Cape with the ‘Ease of Doing Business Initiative’

The City of Cape Town would like to understand the challenges that are faced by new, emerging or existing business owners, when doing business and creating jobs in Cape Town.

With that information, we can start to implement changes as well as monitor progress over time.

Recently, Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis and Mayoral Committee member for Economic Growth, Alderman James Vos, took questions from Capetonians to discuss the Ease of Doing Business initiative.

During the initial phase of the Ease of Doing Business initiative, the city is focusing on what it can do to improve the local business environment.

With this information, the city can start to implement changes as well as monitor progress over time.

FEDHASA members are invited to share their views, as a new, emerging or existing business owner.

If you would like to contribute to this initiative, please complete this short survey to ensure the city focuses on what is important to you in making it simpler and easier to do business in Cape Town.
