Better living conditions are needed in the mining sector, which plays an important role in the economy, says Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.

Better living conditions are needed in the mining sector, which plays an important role in the economy, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said on Tuesday.

"All of us need to do what we can to reintroduce stability... so that that part of the community can continue to create jobs, continue with investments... but also give workers better living conditions," he said at Fedusa's collective bargaining conference in Roodepoort.

"I think we are not working hard enough to address the migrant labour issues", he told the Federation of Unions of SA.

Gordhan, who will deliver his budget speech next week, said debate on the National Development Plan was finished and the time had come for implementation. - Sapa
