Minister Radebe to meet with business partners on the NDP Ambassador Programme

Minister in the Presidency for Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation and Chairperson of the National Planning Commission, Jeff Radebe will host a breakfast meeting with business leaders on the National Development Plan (NDP) Brand Ambassadors programme of the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME).

The meeting intends to introduce the NDP Brand Ambassador Programme to the business sector, foster strong relationship on youth entrepreneurship and encourage active citizenry within the premise of the six pillars of the NDP.


The six pillars of the NDP are:  mobilisation of all South Africans, active engagement of citizens in their own development, expansion of the economy and making growth inclusive, building of key capabilities - human, physical and institutional; building a capable and developmental state and fostering strong leadership throughout society.

The DPME NDP Brand Ambassador Programme is premised on action to champion youth entrepreneurship, boost economic growth, increase employment, reduce poverty and inequality.
