The Provincial Week is intended to give permanent delegates to the NCOP and Provincial Legislatures an opportunity to ensure the following: –
- Engage with both National and Provincial Departments, public entities, Municipalities and SMMEs to get a sense of the challenges that they are facing in addressing poverty, unemployment and inequality;
- Undertake oversight visits to employment creation initiatives across the nine provinces, including short and long term projects and interventions such as factories, industries, expanded public works projects, etc.;
- Undertake oversight visits to labour-intensive programmes and large-scale investment projects in electricity, rail, water and transport infrastructure; and
- Get a broader understanding of the economic challenges facing provinces, especially in dealing with the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality.
The theme for the National Council of Provinces Provincial Week is Advancing our collective efforts to creating work opportunities for our people.
