micro2The MTSF recognises the centrality of a growth path that addresses the economy’s structural constraints, expands the industrial base and creates decent work opportunities on a larger scale. In addition it is necessary to build a low-carbon economy and infuse knowledge and innovation throughout the economy.

The purpose of this sub-programme is to develop the necessary policies to realise such a growth path.

It is envisaged that the department will produce papers and policy proposals that elaborates the path for South Africa’s economic growth and development and the creation of decent work, building on the medium-term strategic framework.

This sub-programme will, amongst others, establish an economic development index on strengthening coherence and alignment between the different domains of economic policies of the state in order to maximize economic development and employment.

This sub-programme will generate fact sheets, policy briefings, policy proposals and working papers. Platforms for economic policy debates (“policy platforms”) will be created. Conferences, workshops and consultations with domestic stakeholders and international persons
