The business response to the NDP acknowledges the many other political and social issues directly affecting the Plan.

Throughout the document, we’ve indicated specific individuals at KPMG as a point of reference. Each has expressed their point of view on the topics covered.
KPMG is committed to pro-actively supporting the process of the National Planning Commission (NPC) as we work together with leaders across the public and private sectors to secure a positive future for South Africa. The overarching goals and objectives of the NPC, on behalf of Government, are clear – ie, to eliminate poverty and reduce inequality over the next 20 years. This is not only the right thing to do but also essential for our sustained growth, stability and ultimately posterity.
