Durban

Durban is best known as South Africa's sub-tropical beach getaway and is home to around 2.5 million people. It is South Africa's third largest city, and the second largest industrial hub, and one of the country's fastest growing urban centres.

The city has a strong and diverse economy with strengths in manufacturing, transport, commerce, finance and tourism.

Durban is a major importer of raw materials and manufactured products. South African manganese, chrome ore, coal, sugar, and grain are exported through the city. Durban's harbor is equipped with docking and loading facilities, and a grain elevator is located near the city. Industries in Durban include machine works, railroad repair, oil refineries and general manufacturing.

Durban is connected to Pietermaritzburg, Johannesburg, and Pretoria by road and rail links, and is nearby to other large industrial areas such as Pinetown and New Germany.
