Message from the CEO

Welcome to the new ECSECC website. We are very proud to launch this site and hope that is gives users a better experience and easy access to the wealth of information that is on this site. The purpose of the ECSECC website is to serve as an information portal to institutions in the Eastern Cape looking for data for the specific purposes of planning, monitoring and research. The website should also inform readers about the work that ECSECC does across our programme focus areas economic governance, infrastructure governance, provincial and local government support, human resource development and HIV/AIDS. This new site has a wealth of information about the priority projects that ECSECC is implementing in the 2015/16 financial year.

New to this site is the timeline module to our archives. The timeline is intended to give easy access to information about development planning in the Eastern Cape between 1994 and 2014. The timeline will also showcase ECSECCs contribution to development planning, research and socio-economic development in the province in the twenty years of its existence. The timeline will be a great tool for students, researchers, development practitioners and policy makers who need to see their current concerns in a longer-term context. We also hope you will be supporting knowledge management in the province by sending us documents that you think should be on this timeline.

We remain confident that ECSECC is well positioned to continue its strategic advisory and compacting role in the Province. Our current priorities are supporting Provincial Government in the long-term development planning processes and implementation of policy priorities in the provincial and local sphere; provide technical support to the OTP in its efforts to strategically position the province for the project management of the Presidential Infrastructure Co-ordinating Commission's (PICC) Strategic Infrastructure Projects. We will also continue to support the province in its ongoing interactions with the national departments and state-owned entities.

Looking ahead, we are confident that ECSECC will, in its own modest way, accelerate the process of socio-economic transformation underway in our Province.
