Newly released Vision 2030 publication can inspire your objectives.

The first annual Vision 2030 book has been published! Themed “Our Future Our Plan” and fully endorsed by the National Planning Commission Secretariat in the Department of the Presidency, Top Media and Communications has produced the first publication to examine, outline and unpack the National Development Plan (NDP) from both the private and public sector perspective.

The publication inspects the impact of the NDP on South African society; clears up the ambiguity of the need for private sector investment in state infrastructure products; reflects on the projects and policies that will make the NDP a success; and details the NDP to make it accessible and understandable to all South Africans and potential investors.

“While there are people who believe that the government is no longer committed to its implementation, this is not true – especially when based on the interviews and research conducted for this publication. Government remains committed but they have had to be realistic about the best way to implement programmes towards the realisation of the NDP. The NDP remains at the heart of everything government does. It has become part and parcel of all the government’s medium-and long-term strategies. However, there still remains a concern about the commitment of the private sector to the implementation”, says Ryland Fisher, Associate Editor of the publication.

South African Minister interviews in the publication include Aaron Motsoaledi, Health; Naledi Pandor, Science and Technology; Angie Motshekga, Basic Education; Nathi Nhleko, Police; Rob Davies, Trade and Industry; Nhlanhla Nene, Finance; Nomvula Mokonyane, Water Affairs and Sanitation; Thulas Nxesi, Public Works; Lindiwe Sisulu, Human Settlements; Pravin Gordhan, Governance and Traditional Affairs. Christo Wiese and Roland Sassoon are amongst business leaders interviewed.

“Following South Africa’s celebration of over 20 years of freedom and democracy, it is now time to begin looking towards our future,” says Khulekanu Mathe, the Acting Head of Secretariat, National Planning Commission The Presidency and one of the contributors of Vision 2030.

Some of the topics covered in Vision 2030 includes: 

  • Education and skills development

  • Mining remains Africa’s greatest hope
