“Creative minds working together for a Smart City”
The City of Tshwane is one of the six biggest metropolitan cities in South Africa, with a population total of 2.2 million inhabitants and the highest level of education attainment in the country. The City of Tshwane is the administrative capital of South Africa and although government plays an important role in the city's economy, there are many other sectors that are doing extremely well towards contributing to the economy. In fact, the City of Tshwane has adapted to globalisation remarkably well, and has all the elements of a “Smart City.” The city is a centre of government in South Africa with all the national government departments located in it. It also forms part of the Gauteng Global City Region - the wealthiest and fasted growing economic region on the African continent.
