We recognise that in order to achieve our long-term goal of ensuring that our industry remains relevant and sustainable, we need to deliver solutions that are in line with the needs of our country, taking into consideration global and local developments and challenges.
Our strategic priorities are therefore set against the backdrop of the local and international agenda.
The national priorities for our country are detailed in the National Growth Plan (NGP) and the National Development Plan (NDP). The NDP is Government’s proposed roadmap to eliminating poverty and reducing inequality by 2030.
When considering the international agenda we take guidance from the fact that South Africa is part of the BRICS grouping as well as a member of the G20 and the Financial Stability Board. As a contributing policymaker to the G20, South Africa is in a position to influence the international reform debate. Conversely, as a policy follower, South Africa also has a responsibility to implement policy in line with the Financial Stability Board’s recommendations.
