Gauteng Province as an Investment Destination: Economic Overview


Gauteng is South Africa’s smallest province by area accounting for 1.5% of the country’s total area. However, it is home to a quarter of the country’s population and generates the largest contribution towards national GDP at 35%. The province features the municipalities of Johannesburg, Tshwane, and Ekurhuleni as well as the districts of Sedibeng and the West Rand.
