District Mayor hosts business breakfast

The Executive Mayor of the Sedibeng District Municipality, Councillor Mahole Simon Mofokeng hosted a Business Breakfast Meeting on the Municipal IDP/Budget for the year 2012/2013 and Growth & Development Strategy.

The event will take place at 07:00 on Wednesday April 25 in the Vereeniging City Hall.
The meeting will be followed by the 2012/2013 IDP/Budget and the Growth & Development Strategy Consultative Meeting.

Its purpose is to share ideas with the business community on what the Municipality can do to achieve a better life in the region. This is the commitment to ensure more active community participation in local government.

“Working together with the Business Community,” says District Mayor Mofokeng, “we must collectively approach the reinvention of the economy from old to new by consolidating existing sectors and exploring new sectors of growth, and in this way building local economies to create more employment and sustainable livelihoods.”

“Our planning and alignment must first and foremost be informed by the five priorities set by government to address the poverty, inequalities, education, unemployment, health and rural development”, added the Executive Mayor.

“Our collective approach on these matters must at all times work towards the vision of our government, which is the creation of a united, non-racial non-sexist, free, democratic and prosperous South Africa.”
