UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 45 year implementation plan, commitments, and their reprioritisation, and resource allocation. The NDP five-year implementation plan forms the basis for departmental strategic plans and annual performance plans. The structure of government, including Cabinet clusters, Ministerial and technical implementation fora for co-ordination and implementation will be streamlined for better results and effective delivery. Similarly, early in this Sixth Parliament, we will be presenting the proposed Integrated Planning Framework, which will ensure better integration across all levels of government. The Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation, which I am privileged to lead, has spearheaded a public-private growth initiative, PPGI, to promote economic growth and create jobs. In this regard, I want to thank my predecessor, Minister Dlamini- Zuma who was part of the beginning of this initiative. The private sector has committed investment, as articulated by the President, of R840 billion in 43 projects in over 19 sectors of the economy, to create 155 000 jobs in the next five years.

A capable state requires effectively co-ordinated state institutions with skilled public servants who are committed to the public good and capable of delivering consistently high quality services, while prioritising the nation’s developmental objectives. We will ensure the appointment of the Head of Public Administration, as espoused in the NDP 2030, by April 2020 to spearhead the professionalisation of the Public Service and move to make appointments of heads of departments more permanent, to promote stability in the Public Service.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
