DTI announces partial reopening of MCEP
Sep 29, 2016
MCEP was initially devised as an instrument to support companies by encouraging investments, competitiveness and retaining employments in the production sector. The programme consists of two components that will be of interest to GreenCape’s manufacturing members. The Production Incentive, administered by IDAD, is for green technology and resource efficiency product manufacturers. It provides support through a cost-sharing grant of between 30 percent and 50 percent of investment. The Industrial Financing loan facility, administered by the IDC, offers manufacturers finance at a preferential interest rate.
Minister Rob Davies said the R1-billion loan component of MCEP was being reopened to support production and manufacturing in South Africa. For further information on MCEP can be accessed here.
