Johannesburg – The National Development Plan (NDP) is the country’s plan and all citizens should take up their respective roles to ensure its successful implementation, said former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene.
He was speaking during a panel discussion at the Institute of Internal Auditors South Africa 2017 conference on Monday, in his capacity as adviser for Thebe Investment Corporation.
Nene explained that the NDP is no different to other plans the government has introduced to address inequality, poverty and unemployment. The problem with these plans is that they all lacked a coordinated effort for their implementation. If the NDP is not implemented it will be another dream deferred, he said.
