Department of Trade Industry and Competition South Africa

The CIP aims to leverage investment by supporting infrastructure that is deemed to be critical, thus lowering the cost of doing business.


Public institutions and provincial governments can contribute (financially or otherwise), towards projects but cannot be applicants except for provincial entities in the case of state-owned industrial parks. Projects that have applied for the Shared Economic Infrastructure Facility (SEIF) will not be funded or co-funded for the same infrastructure activity under CIP.
