Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa will, tomorrow Friday, 15 May 2015, address the Muslim Civil Society Conference Gala-Dinner on the role of civil society in the implementation of the National Development Plan (NDP) at the Wanderers Club, Illovo, Johannesburg.
The Muslim Civil Society Conference is organised by the Auwal Socio-economic Research Institute (ASRI) in response to government’s call for active participation of all stakeholders in making concrete proposals regarding the implementation of the NDP.
With the NDP now adopted and supported by the broadest sections of our society, the focus has now shifted to implementation. Government has developed a Medium Terms Strategic Framework (2014 – 2019) which constitutes the initial building blocks toward the 2030 goals.
Government has embarked on a process to call for nominations for people with skills in areas such as: infrastructure development, urban and regional planning, energy, agriculture and food security, education and training, health, public policy and governance, community engagement, economics, finance, budgeting and banking, ICT, telecommunications amongst others, to serve in the National Planning Commission.
The Muslim civil society conference is expected to be attended by members of the public, business leaders, academics and representatives of civil society organisations. The conference will focus on eight chapters of the NDP: Improving Education and Innovation; Promoting Health; Uniting the Country; Building Safer Communities; Protecting the Environment; Fighting Corruption; Creating Employment; and Effectively Implementing Policy.
