Leveraging Services for Growth, Employment and Equity: Services Strategies: Reaching 2014 Employment Targets

by ALTMAN, M., 2004
Research report prepared for the Director Generals' Economic and Employment Cluster, Government of South Africa, Pretoria

Altman explores whether government’s current policy priorities and plans for the formal services sector are sufficient to guide the South African economy towards its 2014 target of halving unemployment. Over the past seven years, net new employment has mainly occurred in formal and non-formal services. Given the structure of economy, it is probable that future employment will be created in many of the same sectors, including finance, ICT and tourism.
