SA's challenges require single-minded attention: Zuma


South Africa's battle against poverty, unemployment and inequality required single-minded attention, President Jacob Zuma said in India on Thursday.

Delivering a speech to business people at a Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (Brics) session, Zuma said it was significant that the focus among Brics members was on global stability, security and prosperity.

"In South Africa, we have made the achievement of inclusive growth and prosperity our main goal as we move towards the second phase of our transition, following the defeat of colonial oppression and apartheid," he said in a speech prepared for delivery.

He also said the New Growth Path framework, unveiled in 2010, had helped South Africa achieve inclusive growth and create jobs.
