I WISH I could tell you that the Government and Economic Transformation Programmes (GTP and ETP) will affect all of you directly and immediately and that you would have enjoyed tremendous effects from them. But no, that’s not the case, that’s not true – not always.
IF there is one area where there is a never-ending stream of complaints, it is in education. Critics of our education system argue that the quality of education in schools and universities has dropped. We hear this plaintive cry, over and over again.
THE entire transformation programme is anchored on one over-riding aim – to become a high-income, developed nation by 2020. That is our true north. Everything that is being done and will be done in future is to enable us to get there.
