Welcome to the Philippi Economic Development Initiative
being the change – Under the leadership of Thomas Swana, PEDI is forging ahead with a plan to unite business owners and residents of Philippi. The plan will create a model for urban renewal and development in South Africa.
The development of key catalyst sectors is at the heart of PEDI’s drive to transform the economy of this, the Central Suburbs.
Vision & Mission
Vision – To build Philippi into a thriving urban hub where businesses choose to invest and grow, and where people choose to live, work and play.
Mission – To facilitate Turnkey solutions that will enable stakeholders across the wider Philippi community to create a shared vision.
PEDI HAS WELCOMED THE ANNOUNCEMENT by the Provincial Department of Agriculture that a study will be undertaken to understand the agricultural value of the Philippi Horticultural Area. In a statement to the media, PEDI CEO Thomas Swana said that credible information to inform decisions on future land use in the area is urgently needed.
PEDI believes that the optimisation of the PHA can result in a range of benefits for new business opportunities and increased employment for the local community as well as for the City. Proper management of this asset can transform the PHA into a vibrant farming node that will see land vacancies being taken up, unproductive land becoming productive, and the creation of the potential new businesses and jobs.
