The Democratic Alliance today said
the likelihood that the country will reach the five million jobs target set out
in the New Growth Plan is highly unlikely.
DA Shadow minister of Economic
Development Haniff Hoosen said a similar conclusion had been reached by the
International Labour Organisation and Oxfam last week, that Minister of
Economic Development Ebrahim Patel should admit that the NGP has failed to
chart a new course.
Hoosen said that the ANC government
has never met the promises that it has made over the past years.
"We have pointed that out to
government on a number of occasions, yet they still go on making promises producing
these jobs; the reality is that the target that has been made has never been
reached" Hoosen added.
