The South African Revenue Service defines an IDZ
as being a purpose-built industrial estate linked to an international air or sea port which might contain one or multiple customs-controlled areas tailored for manufacturing and storage of goods to boost beneficiation, investment, economic growth and the development of skills and employment.
But even in the midst of the excitement in the Boston area, Tyra continues to be loyal to her IDZ
crew right in her hometown.
Hence controversy has surrounded the decision-making process to construct the port and IDZ
been a grade tournamend - and idz
nod over yed.
CDC spokesperson Ayanda Vilakazi said: "By the second quarter of the new financial year, the Coega IDZ
will have commenced with construction to the approximate value of R700m ($76m), with the current value of construction projects estimated at R350m ($38m).
The latter was responsible for the development of the protection and clothing system of the German enhanced future soldier system, originally known as IdZ
-ES and now renamed IdZ
The CDC was established in 1999 and is mandated by the South African Government to implement the Coega Industrial Development Zone (IDZ
), as the holder of the IDZ
Provisional Operators Permit.
The IAC-Feltex JV will be located in the East London IDZ
Automotive Supplier Park.
The landmark Coega IDZ
in the Eastern Cape has not thus far yielded the benefits originally envisaged but neither has it been regarded as a failure.
Developed under a partnership with IDZ
Technologies, the PinPoint (TM) system employs radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and GPS tracking to enhance the accountability and control of tools, ground support equipment and other devices.
The Integriertes Modulares Einsatzsystem Schweizer Soldat (Imess--integrated and modular engagement system for the Swiss soldier) programme started in 2005 with concept evaluation and testing of the German IdZ
system, and in November 2007 Armasuisse signed a contract worth 120 million [euro] with Eads for the prototype phase that included the supply of 25 systems as well as the integration of Imess equipment into both a Piranha 8 x 8 and a Duro troop transport vehicle.
Locating a project of this nature in the IDZ
puts Coega on the map as a significant destination nationally for big infrastructure projects.
