Our Vision 2030 remains the blueprint for inclusive growth, social cohesion, and prosperity for all. Under this plan, we will continue to develop skills that can help our country realise its developmental goals and address labour market issues.
We want young people to come forward with bright ideas; we want the women and men in our country to have jobs.
Marikana is a huge wake-up call.
We remain a highly unequal society in which poverty and prosperity are still defined by race as well as gender.
Corruption in state-owned enterprises and other public institutions has undermined our government's programs to address poverty and unemployment.
Issues to do with corruption, issues of how we can straighten out our state-owned enterprises, and how we deal with 'state capture' are issues that are on our radar screen.
