North West hosts engagement on implementation of National Development Plan
1 Nov 2012
The North West Executive Council and stakeholders in the province are to make inputs on the implementation of the National Development Plan (NPA) and Vision 2030 during the National Planning Commission’s provincial outreach programme to be held at the Mmabatho Convention Centre tomorrow.
The objective of the engagement to be led by the Minister of National Planning in the Presidency, Trevor Manuel and six members of the commission is to popularise the NDP so that it is translated into targets to be incorporated into future performance and delivery agreements and ensure that its aspects are incorporated into their own long- term planning exercises and implementation plans.
“Though the National Development Plan is a product of consultative process, the provincial engagement affords us broad stakeholder and citizen ownership towards the implementation process,” says Premier Thandi Modise.
The first session to commence at 8h00 will be with the Provincial Executive Council (Exco) while the second session to commence at 10h00 am will involve invited representatives of the business sector, labour, traditional leadership, civil society, political parties, chairpersons of portfolio committees of the legislature, youth formations, etc.
Premier Modise has following on the establishment of the National Planning Commission established a Provincial Planning Commission and appointed former MEC Darkey Africa as fulltime Commissioner. Additional commissioners were advertised in the print media and appointments are to be made in due course.
Members of the media are invited to cover this event. Kindly RSVP with Pat Dooms at 084 831 4072 or email@example.com for accreditation by 16h00 this afternoon.
