The vision of the North West Department of Economic Development, Environment, Conservation and Tourism (dedect) is to be a growing economy wherein enterprises thrive.

Its mission is to lead, coordinate, support, implement and champion inclusive economic growth for the people of the North West Province through economic planning and development, enterprise development, and effective regulatory services.

The Department's values, derived from the Constitution, underpin the activities of the 'dedect' through: acting in a fair manner when executing its responsibilities; treating all clients and employees equitably in all respects; remaining accessible to its stakeholders and role players in the course of executing its responsibilities; undertaking to be transparent in the conduct of its core business; being accountable for its business actions and decisions; participating fully in all areas of its responsibility to satisfy the needs of the clients and stakeholders; and exercising good governance at all times.

Note: After the 2019 General Election the former North West Department of Tourism was disestablished and incorporated into the new Department of Economic Development, Environment, Conservation and Tourism.
