The agreement sets in place the necessary mechanisms through IDAP to support the City of Tshwane’s plans for its aerospace sector development. Focus areas have been defined as important on the short term, one of which is the development of a sector profile of Tshwane. The AISI will convene a CSIR team to conduct a sector profile for the city in line with specific terms of reference. A second phase of the profile will be the development of an aerospace strategy for the city. The IDAP will support skills development, notably the requirement to to train 100 artisans, with relevant stakeholders such as the Denel Group, SAA and Aerosud.
Mechanisms for information sharing and operational support will also be put in place, such as the AISI’s commitment to convene a business forum twice a year and quarterly meetings between IDAP and the City of Tshwane.
The aerospace agreement was signed on behalf of the AISI by the CSIR’s Johan le Roux, who has executive responsibility for a number of CSIR implementation units, and Mr Jason Ngobeni, City Manager: Tshwane.
Marié Botha, Manager of the AISI, comments, “The Integrated dti Aerospace Programme is in an ideal position to support the City of Tshwane’s plans to promote aerospace as a growth sector in the city. Aerospace has one of the highest economic multipliers of all high tech industries as well as a significant skills spillover effect.” This is in line with the AISI’s strategic objectives of job creation, transformation of the aerospace industry and industrialisation.
