Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale wants the Limpopo Economic Development Agency (LEDA) to make the province an industrious region.

Cassel MathaleSpeaking at the provincial lekgotla in Bela-Bela on Tuesday, Mathale said LEDA had a mandate to operate differently, and lead the way in establishing and building a strong cooperative movement in the province.

"LEDA must improve our tourism industry, ensure mining beneficiation for our communities through a state owned enterprise, and grow our agricultural economy.

"The agency must also collaborate with institutions of higher learning and further education centres to ensure that there is skills development for our people, especially young people," he said.

Mathale said there must be economic activity in all five of the provincial districts and the growth points must get the necessary infrastructure to enable further intensification. The five districts are Vhembe, Waterberg, Mopani, Sekhukhune and Capricorn.

The premier said LEDA will be supported by the provincial government in order to succeed in its mandate.

"We have the tenacity to achieve our goals and we must motivate each other at our respective work places to double the commitment to the course of improving the living standard of our people.

"Every government and municipal employee must be a true patriot and activist for change, motivated by nothing except making a meaningful difference in the lives of our people," said Mathale.
