Wesgro is mandated to operate the One Stop Shop in the Western Cape, which streamlines the investment value chain for medium to large companies looking to invest in South Africa, making it easier and faster to invest in Cape Town and the province.

The centre hosts relevant government departments and state-owned entities to help investors and exporters negotiate the regulations and administration to obtain various approvals, licences, authorisations, registrations and/or permits.

   Making business a pleasure in South Africa

For ease and convenience of doing business, the One Stop Shop is a centralised contact point that houses under one roof government entities such as the South African Revenue Service, the Department of Home Affairs, the Department of Environmental Affairs, Eskom and the Companies and Intellectual Properties Commission. This saves investors from having to deal with a multitude of government departments in different locations.
