Introducing the guest speaker for the event, Rev Sitsabo Dlamini, Chief Project Manager for the company said, "First I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the newly elected leadership of the ANC."
"The business community in SA traditionally supports efforts by the government to stimulate economic growth. Nowhere has this goal been brought into sharper focus, than in the NDP, to which we owe Minister Manuel’s National Planning Commission a huge debt of gratitude. In President Jacob Zuma’s political report to conference, the President mentioned that the NDP articulates a programme or national vision of where the country is going. He said the critical task now is to implement the plan."
Rev Dlamini then went on to set the scene for the interaction between the minister and the audience by giving a brief overview of how the South African economy has evolved since the ANC came into power in 1994. He mentioned that Minister Manuel has been involved with ANC economic policy from the RDP, through GEAR, ASGISA, and more recently the NDP. He invited the minister to share with the forum some of his insights on how the NDP seeks to overcome most of the obstacles and fundamental implementation challenges that were experienced with the previous policy positions.
