This dissertation compiles and presents a profile of manufacturing and exports from the Limpopo Province. It reviews the literature that explains the determinants of trade and that puts forward the arguments in favour of outward-oriented policies. It reviews the geography of South African exports and policies aimed at promoting regional industrial development and exports. The manufacturing and trade data required to compile an export profile of the province are analyzed. After the manufacturing and export profile of Limpopo were compiled and analyzed, it became clear that Limpopo Province had many manufacturing sub-sectors with high export potential that could be tapped to fight the problem of unemployment and poverty that the province is experiencing.
