There have been increasing demands for economic transformation and innovation in the maritime industry, which is why EThekwini Maritime Cluster (EMC) has worked closely with industry role-players to facilitate transformation in the sector through key initiatives. Good relationships with industry stakeholders is key.
Last year, the EMC voiced gratitude to outgoing EMC Managing Director, Ms. Thato Tsautse. Her contribution to the maritime industry in Durban was acknowledged and appreciated. As 2017 ended, a new Board of Directors was elected. The mission of EMC remains clear and unchanged – to transform the industry and build on the foundation established since 2009. Under the Chairmanship of Mr Moshe Motlohli (Port Manager, Port of Durban – TNPA), the new Board includes a number of maritime business leaders and influencers who will assist in doing just that by providing guidance and direction to the team.
