1968. Promotion of Economic Development of the Homelands Act

This act "provided for the controlled introduction of White capital into the homelands. Under this act it was possible for Whites to act as agents or contractors for the South African Bantu Trust, or the various homeland development corporations, providing the industrial or mining development became the property of the Trust or development corporation after a stipulated period of time (usually twenty-five years)" (Christopher 1994: 90).
