Minister Lindiwe Zulu participates in high-level roundtable discussion with private sector

11th February 2020

As part of accelerating Government’s implementation of the National Development Plan (Vision 2030) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Minister of Social Development, Ms Lindiwe Zulu, will on Tuesday, 11 February 2020, participate in a high-level round table panel discussion under the theme “The Role that the Private Sector can play in reimagining Social Development”. 

Organised in partnership with GovChat, a citizen-government technology platform, the round table discussion will bring together business leaders from retail and financial sectors to discuss the contribution of the private sector to the realisation of the social development agenda in South Africa. The roundtable discussion is premised on the understanding that the attainment of the goals of the NDP rely on all actors of the society.

The private sector increasingly plays an important role as a key partner in tackling the developmental challenges facing South Africa. The roundtable therefore creates an opportunity for leaders of the private sector to engage Minister Zulu and to identify potential areas of collaborations and partnerships with the Department.

In response to the rapidly changing technological environment and the need to digitise public services, Minister Zulu will also use the roundtable to officially launch the department on the Govchat platform which will enable citizens across the country to interact and to report on service delivery related matters at any one of 30,000 government facilities country-wide. Data collated will provide a real-time, centralized complaints management reporting system (CMS), as well as an early-warning system (EWS).
