20 January 2014 Seven Cabinet ministers will be joining the South African delegation in Davos this week to present the country’s National Development Plan (NDP) to global business and political leaders at the latest annual meeting of the World Economic Forum, the National Treasury said on the weekend. Headed for the Swiss resort town are: Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies, National Planning Minister Trevor Manuel, Economic Development Minister Ebrahim Patel, Communications Minister Yunus Carrim, Science and Technology Minster Derek Hanekom, and Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa. “This year’s WEF meeting takes place as parts of the global economy are showing signs of a pick-up in growth,” the Treasury said in a statement. The World Bank’s Global Economics Prospects report, published last week, forecast that growth in emerging markets would rise from 4.8 percent in 2013 to 5.3 percent this year, 5.5 percent in 2015 and 5.7 percent in 2016. While this is some 2.2 percentage points below the pace of growth that emerging markets achieved between 2003 and 2007, spurred by an unprecedented boom in commodities, the Bank said this gap did not reflect an easing of growth potential in developing countries, but rather a cooling off of the unsustainable, turbo-charged pre-crisis growth. “However, developing countries do need higher levels of inclusive economic growth if they are to meet their developmental challenges,” the Treasury said. “In South Africa’s case, the country needs faster and more inclusive growth to reduce unemployment, poverty and inequality. “To achieve this, South Africans have rallied behind the National Development Plan (NDP) which aims to reduce the costs of living and of doing business, resulting in improved consumer and business confidence, rising levels of private investment, and higher growth and employment.” For South Africa, the NDP provides a strong platform for collaboration among business, government, labour and civil society and the transition to a faster-growing, more inclusive economy. The plan promotes enhanced competitiveness, expanded infrastructure, greater spatial efficiency in growing cities, and accelerated rural development. It prioritises measures to build a capable, effective state that delivers services to citizens while encouraging business investment and growth. President Jacob Zuma, at a breakfast briefing last week for South African business and government leaders who would be attending the WEF meeting, said the NDP was a socio-economic blueprint that enjoyed overwhelming support among many sectors of society. “As you engage the world you will be able to say we know exactly where we want to be by 2030 and we are working very hard to get there as South Africans,” Zuma said. “We are busy factoring the NDP into the draft Medium Term Strategic Framework that will be discussed by the Cabinet that will be appointed after elections in its first lekgotla. “In a few months, the plan will have been mainstreamed in the work of every government department,” Zuma said, adding: “We do trust that the private sector will also factor the NDP into its own strategic plans in every company so that we move seamlessly together.” SAinfo reporter and National Treasury
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are leaving the forecast largely alone this morning, tweaking only our rain totals here over the next 48 hours and removing Saturday precipitation. Today we have clouds increasing in northern areas, and we see a few scattered light showers develop in NW Ohio. That may trigger a few hundredths to .1″ there. Most of today’s action will hold in Michigan and over Lake Erie. A large part of the state may end up staying partly sunny through the entire day today. Better organized rains develop overnight tonight and continue through tomorrow into very early Friday morning. Rain will be moderate, but we are less concerned about widespread thunderstorms, and as such, are lowing our rain expectations for tomorrow. We are putting rain totals for the 2 day period at .25”-.1” with coverage at 90% of the state; updated totals are shown on the map at right. Temperatures will be mild today and will reach their peak tomorrow. Today we expect highs the 50s and 60s, and tomorrow we will be at least in the 60s over the state, but we are keeping any run at 70 in the southwest quadrant of the state, mostly because we think the rain through the day will put a cap on temps, keeping other areas just under 70s…but we will keep our fingers crossed.Friday we should be done with precipitation, and temps pull back closer to normal. Clouds give way to some sun as the day progresses. On Saturday, we still see some clouds around and we cant rule out early morning sprinkles, flurries or even lake effect snow in NE Ohio. WE should turn out partly sunny over the rest of the state.Beautiful, dry, sunny weather arrives on Sunday with high pressure dominating. The dry pattern holds all the way through next week into the start of the 11-16 day period next Friday. Temperatures will be near normal through the period. Unfortunately, we can’t keep that pattern going for the balance of the extended window.Scattered showers are back starting Saturday the 23rd. Those will be mostly from US 30 northward and will produce rain totals up to .3″. The same set up will be in still for Sunday and Monday…with rains up to .3″ each day from US 30 northward, but nothing farther south. Finally we see statewide rains develop for Monday night through Tuesday and Wednesday. Combined rain totals for the event, from next weekend through the 27th will be 1-3 inches from US 30 north, and 1-2″ from US 30 south. Coverage will be 90% of the state. Colder air arrives at the end of the 16 day window for Thursday the 28th. That may trigger a little bit of morning snow with statewide potential, but no accumulation.
