From Creamer Media in Johannesburg, this is the Real Economy Report.

Denel Dynamics has developed a new unmanned air vehicle, which was displayed at the recent African Aeropsace and Defence exhibition. Keith Campbell reports.

Keith Campbell:

Other news making headlines this week: Toyota’s new parts centre leads a new round of investment from the car manufacturer; and Eskom sets up a school to train specialist welders.

Toyota South Africa Motors’ new R363-million parts distribution warehouse is the first big money spent in a fresh multibillion-rand investment cycle by the Japanese manufacturer.

TSAM president and CEO Dr Johan van Zyl

Eskom CEO Brian Dames says the utility has taken on board criticism over the fact that it is continuing to employ foreign specialist welders at its power station projects and has established an internal welding school to redress the situation.
