Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to identify, grow and strengthen business, industry and tourism in the region with our primary objectives being: 

  • The effective representation of the views of business to government at all levels, particularly in the local government sphere.
  • The sustainable Local Economic Development of the Region

With incredible growth year on year, commerce, industry, tourism and agriculture have become major contributors to the local economy and the formation of a Chamber was a natural progression and the chamber was formally constituted in November 2010, taking on King Shaka’s praise name “ilembe”. Within the first year of operation the ilembe chamber was awarded “Chamber of the year for 2011” at a national convention hosted by the South African Chamber of Commerce.

Our head office is located in the booming town of Ballito - a mere 15 kilometres from the New King Shaka International Airport, strategically located between the two major harbours of Durban and Richards Bay.
