Cape Town - Increasing GDP growth to 5% over the next five years is one of the key economic targets of the 2014-19 Medium-Term Strategic Framework released by Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe.
The framework, which lists 14 key outcomes and associated activities and targets, would serve as a prioritisation framework for government, he said on Thursday.
Other key economic targets include increasing the rate of investment to 25% GDP by 2019 and reducing the official unemployment rate from 25% - 14% by 2020.
Referring to economic infrastructure, the document said key 2019 targets included increasing the electricity generation reserve margin from the current precarious 1% to 19% and increasing the tonnage of goods moved by rail from 207 million tons last year to 330 million tons.
The framework also spells out five-year targets for basic education, health care, crime, agriculture, housing and service delivery, among others.
