FROM THE EDITOR

Global property portal, Lamudi, has compiled a list of emerging investment hotspots across the continent, based on market trends, infrastructure developments and attractive commercial, residential and industrial real estate opportunities. To learn more, read article titled Top 5 emerging real estate hotspots in Africa.

Following public criticism of plans to send an Eskom delegation to Davos while the power utility is reducing staff numbers as part of an intense savings drive, Eskom announced that is has withdrawn its participation at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. For more of this article, read Eskom grudgingly withdraws from World Economic Forum.

It has been reported that the City of Tshwane will put 81 properties and 10 prime portions of land on auction to raise R500m to fund various projects aimed at improving the lives of the poor. In the same article, Mayor Kgosientso Sputla Ramokgopa is said to have lashed the EFF for apparently encouraging vulnerable people to invade council land and accused the organisation of trying to gain “political currency. Read the full story in an article titled Tshwane to raise R500m in land, property auction.

According to Tony Wake, many business professionals and life coaches hammer on the topic of “goal setting” regularly and most of us have heard this term many times in our lives. But what exactly is goal setting? Scroll down to an article titled Goal Setting for Go-Getters to learn more.

We then take a closer look at Centurion, a rapidly growing city that is nestled at the intersection of N1 and N14 Highways between Midrand and Pretoria. See the Focus On section of this Newsletter to learn more about this interesting town.

Enjoy!
