The awards ceremony, hosted by Executive Mayor Danny Jordaan, acknowledged the key role that business plays in the economic prosperity and growth of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, which incorporates Port Elizabeth, Uitenhage and Despatch.
“The Top 50 Company Awards celebrates and congratulates companies on their achievements, their spirit of resilience and action, as well as their contribution to business and the economy in the Nelson Mandela Bay metropole,” Jordaan said.
