Good Afternoon!

It is an honour once again to be afforded the opportunity to open this Annual Social Sector Conference of the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) in which we report on progress made over the past twelve month period.  As it is the norm, you have outdone yourselves in reaching the set goals. We are proud that EPWP Phase 3 is in full swing and that we have recorded a number of achievements in the first year of this Phase.  Please give yourselves a round of applause!

The preliminary report on the Social Sector points out that we are on course to achieve our annual targets.  This places the Sector in a good position to go forward and achieve its overall target of just over one million work opportunities from the overall EPWP five year target of six million work opportunities by 2019.

Minister Dlamini said that in addition to more than four million work opportunities created during EPWP Phase 2, the emphasis should be more on the impact of the EPWP within the communities where these projects are being implemented.
