Johannesburg - The DA on Saturday called on government to implement its National Development Plan to create jobs, parliamentary leader Mmusi Maimane said.

"If the NDP is implemented now and in its entirety, then 90% of the 11 million new jobs in South Africa will come from small businesses," Maimane said.

He called on Small Business Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu to urgently present a plan to cut the red tape for small businesses and align her department with the NDP.

"If Minister Zulu doesn’t act swiftly...then the NDP’s vision of 11 million new jobs by 2030 will remain tucked away in the pages of the plan.

"Poverty will remain and we will be no closer to addressing the problems of inequality in South Africa," he said.

Maimane said small business owners should be growing the economy and employing people, not standing in queues filling in forms.

"In the next five years, we must see change in the form of employed South Africans participating in a growing economy.

"We need an economic revolution that is led by small businesses, and the blue print to that revolution is found in the National Development Plan," he said.
