Johannesburg – South Africa needs to find alignment between government policy and its approach and decisions made among departments and agencies to turn things around for a radical economic transformation, said Minister of Small Business Development Lindiwe Zulu.
Zulu, speaking at the Black Business Council (BBC) conference at the Radisson Blu hotel in Sandton on Monday, highlighted that South Africa’s transformation journey had been long partly because the country was focused on developing political stability, to the detriment of economic transformation.
“We need to dig deeper into the power we think we have,” she said. Zulu pointed out that the black majority was still minority players in the economy. “We can’t keep looking back at the past 20 years. We must look to a better 30 years from now,” she said.
