The establishment of the Executive Council Project Steering Committee constituted by the Executive Council, Mahikeng and Ngaka Modiri Molema District Mayors and representatives of Barolong Boo Ratshidi Tribal Council was also approved by Exco.

Projects to be implemented to boost the local economy and job creation include concrete tile and roof sheet manufacturing, fuel farm, solar manufacturing, maize processing and business process outsourcing services.

The process towards development of the freight hub at the airport has already started with the development of an air, road and rail transport strategy and upgrading of the airport.

The upgrade towards a category 9 is intended at bringing it to strict compliance to South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) and International Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulations so that it can achieve a category 6/7 safety status.

Meanwhile, Exco will in the near future convene a workshop with key industry and government stakeholders on the repositioning of Mahikeng towards an Airport city.
