“South Africa will grow and thrive... (and) help the manufacturing sector to grow and thrive on the basis of localisation,” he said at a breakfast briefing hosted by The New Age in Johannesburg.

“It is so important that South Africa is now increasingly embracing the philosophy of long-term planning.”

He said the country will not achieve this type of growth without the help of the private sector.

“So I expect the private sector to embrace this... and implement it robustly, to work with global and local industry... and to support programmes that will help South Africa grow.” - Sapa
