Nelson Mandela Bay Leadership Summit 2019

29 May 2019 – Boardwalk Conference Centre, Beach Rd, Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth


The Nelson Mandela Bay Leadership Summit 2019 features respected South African leadership figures and captains of industry. The panel of guest speakers will explore the dynamic strands of leadership required for the future of Nelson Mandela Bay.

Speakers will explore, discuss and critically evaluate forward-thinking, responsible and visionary leadership that will create prosperity for the city and her communities.

Through the ideas, lessons, case studies and beliefs of leadership which the guest speakers have accrued through their journeys, they hope to arrive closer to reaching the goals which the conveners of Nelson Mandela Bay Leadership Summit have set to achieve:

  1. Celebrating, raising awareness and promoting the critical importance of leadership as the catalytic driver of growth and economic development in Nelson Mandela Bay.
  2. Nurturing, developing and empowering existing and upcoming leaders of Nelson Mandela Bay.
  3. Providing a platform of leadership knowledge exchange, dialogue and debate between Nelson Mandela Bay executives and respected South African leaders.
  4. Creating an atlas of leadership issues, challenges and opportunities of Nelson Mandela Bay to arrive at shared vision of leadership for the city.
  5. Inducing critical reflections on leadership to enthuse mechanisms of positive change required for the creation of a sustainable future.

Vehicle Export Sales Continuing to Perform Well

Vehicle Export Sales Continuing to Perform Well

NAAMSA commented that the latest vehicle sales reflected a welcome surprise on the upside with export sales continuing to perform exceptionally well. The declining trend in the new vehicle market since the beginning of the year came to a halt in April 2019.

Export sales had again registered strong growth reflecting a substantial improvement of 11 571 vehicles or a gain of 53,8% compared to the 21 519 vehicles exported in April last year.

Demand for domestic new vehicles, particularly the new car market, would continue to remain under pressure in the coming months affected by numerous constraining factors. However, constructive political and economic reforms after the country’s general election on 8 May 2019 could see an improved second half performance in terms of new vehicle sales.

The upward momentum on the export remains strong and industry vehicle production levels would continue to benefit from strong vehicle export sales.
