The National Development Plan (NDP), which charts a 20-year path towards achieving a better life for all South Africans, is now available in all eleven official languages.

To access the popular version of the NDP in all official languages visit and go to "The Plan". For visually impaired persons, software can be downloaded from the same website at no cost which will read the text out loud.

"It is critical that the content of the National Development Plan reaches all South Africans and is available in the languages that they speak. The President has called for a national dialogue about the vision and the plan to take place over the next four to six months. The NPC is determined that South Africans can participate in this dialogue in their mother tongue," said Minister in the Presidency Trevor Manuel, who chairs the National Planning Commission.

The plan is to be refined following a series of public engagements before being put to Cabinet.

President Jacob Zuma appointed the commission consisting of 26 commissioners in April last year to advise government on crucial development issues facing South Africa. The commissioners were further tasked with developing a 2030 vision and development plan for the country that will be tracked over time.

The document, drawn up after a year of intensive work by the commission identified nine key problems facing the country namely, poor education, divided communities, uneven public service performance, an unsustainable resource-intensive economy, a high disease burden, unemployment, existing spatial patterns, crumbling infrastructure and corruption. - BuaNews
