Presentation 1: State of the eThekwini Economy Looking back on 2018, and forward into 2019. The Durban Chamber is excited to be a strategic partner in the development of the Durban EDGE data portal! It is an exciting chance for us to finally have Durban’s key economic information and data online, so that it is more accessible to users, and has a better reach. Once it is up and running, Durban will be the first city in South Africa to have a live, interactive open data and information portal. Here more about this at the forum.
