The NDP is a plan for the whole country. Government needs to engage with all sectors to understand how they are contributing to implementation, and particularly to identify any obstacles to fulfilling their role effectively. The plan sets out ambitious goals for poverty reduction, economic growth, economic transformation and job creation. The private sector has a major role to play in achieving these objectives.
