17 May Industrial Policy Action Plan
With the recent launch of IPAP (Industrial Policy Action Plan) on the 9th May 2016, Minister Rob Davies says there is now an even more pressing need for structural change in the economy, to break out of commodity dependence and move to a more diversified base in which increasing manufacturing-based value addition, employment creation and export-intensity come to define South Africa’s growth trajectory.
IPAP 2016 highlights the requirement for concerted and focused national industrial effort, involving all the key stakeholders and economic partners. One of the key focus areas of IPAP is Public Procurement where all organs of state and public entities are aiming to procure at least 75% of all goods and services from local suppliers. This means that if any business wishes to be considered as a supplier to Government you would require a valid BBBEE certificate, as per the PPPFA.
Anyone requiring a BBBEE certificate may contact SAB&T BEE Services either on email firstname.lastname@example.org or 0860 233 669.
