Top Media and Communications has published a White Paper on the proceedings of the first ground-breaking Vision 2030 Summit, held in Johannesburg in June 2015. At the Summit, endorsed by the Secretariat of the National Planning Commission, policy makers and captains of industry attended eight discussion groups focussing on topics of national importance including Health, Local Government, Public Transport, Food Security, Manufacturing, Education and Skills Development, Agriculture and Security.
This White Paper serves to record the discussions, concerns, opportunities and recommendations made at the discussion groups and is intended to provide policy makers with insight and guidance regarding these sectors.
"The NDP calls on us to take measures to reduce income inequality and raise the income share of the bottom 40% earners. This requires all of us to discuss and reach an agreement on the kind of economic order we want and trade-offs and sacrifices we require to achieve it." Minister in the Presidency, Jeff Radebe, at Vision 2030 Summit.
Ryland Fisher, editorial director at Top Media and Communications said: "the Vision 2030 Summit was an important initiative to show government that there is support for its long-term plans in the private sector. The private sector welcomed the opportunity to raise key issues with government around the growth of our economy. We are publishing this white paper as a way of encapsulating the discussions and as a reminder to all of us about the commitment we made to our country's future."
The summit attracted 260 delegates, 40 speakers and over 16 hours of solution-based interaction between the private and public sectors. Some of the speakers included the Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe; Tom Moyane, Commissioner at SARS; Stephen Hanival, chief economist at the dti; Xolani Qubeka, Secretary general, Black Business Council; Blessing Manale, Executive Head and Mayoral Spokesperson for the City of Tshwane; and Tsietsi Mokhele, CEO of South African Maritime Safety Authority.
