The Governance Innovation Lecture Series: The Centre on Governance is pleased to invite you to participate in a conference by Andrew Donaldson Acting Head of Government Technical Advisory Centre (GTAC), National Treasury, South Africa, entitled “Enabling Growth: Redistribution Priorities for South Africa”.
Andrew Donaldson will present some of his ideas related to growth and redistribution in South Africa. If the South-African National Development Plan 2030 is to be effectively implemented, South-Africa will need clarity about the mechanisms through which growth and redistribution can be jointly advanced. Priorities include social security reform and quality improvements in social services, urban development, housing and public-transport investment. Expanding employment opportunities is the most pressing challenge, requiring policies that might include: support for labour-intensive industry and agriculture, small enter-prise and informal sector development, well-targeted skills programmes, and wage or employment subsidies. Recognising the complementarity between redistributive and growth-enhancing measures is essential.
