"The mandate of the Corporation is to initiate, promote and facilitate the development of manufacturing and processing industries, mining and commerce in a manner calculated to raise the level of income and employment in Lesotho." The Corporation was established by an Act of Parliament known as Act No. 20 of 1967. It was amended as Order No. 13 of 1990 and again as Amendment Act No. 7 of 2000 which became effective on 25th October, 2000. The role of the Corporation is to promote Lesotho as an attractive investment location for both foreign and indigenous investors. LNDC is wholly owned by the Government of Lesotho and falls under the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Cooperatives and Marketing which is responsible for providing overall policy direction on industrialization.
