In 2010, government adopted the New Growth Path framework to take the economy on a new jobs-rich growth trajectory.

In 2011, Social Partners concluded four Social Accords to set out what needs to be done to achieve the jobs goals and commit to work together on clear targets and within defined time frames.

Considerable work has been done and we have a number of clear successes. This Report is a summary of the outcomes of work done in improving basic education, expanding skills, local procurement and promoting jobs through greening the economy. It selects a few case studies to show the work that is being done to implement the Accords.

This report demonstrates the value of action-oriented Social Dialogue. We will provide a separate report on the Accords concluded in 2012 and 2013.
