dc.description.abstract The objective of this study was firstly, to determine the reasons why manufacturing industries established their undertakings in Development Region J. Secondly, to establish the resource requirements for the local beneficiation of the commodities produced in the region. A literature study was undertaken to determine which locational factors were applicable to the commodities, which are produced in the region. The resources available in Development Region J were also reported. This was followed by an empirical investigation. A questionnaire was designed and two hundred and fifteen of a possible two hundred and thirty from the manufacturing industry participated. The results of the investigations show that more than eighty per cent of the respondents regarded the proximity to the consumer market as an important locational factor. The proximity to the consumer market was defined as the market in the immediate vicinity. If the service industries are added, approximately ninety per cent of all industries established in Development Region J established to serve the consumer market in the region. It was also found that approximately ninety per cent, in value, of the minerals, which are produced in Development Region J, had been beneficiated to a final or near final stage. There included the precious metals gold, silver and the platinum group. These industrial activities are however, included as primary sector activities in the statistics. The resources, which would be required for the further benificiation of precious and other metals in the region, are capital, technology and specific skills. The processing of meat and meat products has been identified as an opportunity for future development. Due to changes in the legislation, meat processing, which has been identified as a supply-orientated process, can be done in the region and exported to the large consumer markets. The success achieved with dairy products in the region indicates that resources are available to establish this industry successfully. en
