PUBLIC-PRIVATE GROWTH INITIATIVE (PPGI)
As lead representative organisation for the water sector, Water Shortage SA is involved in the Public-Private Growth Initiative that is engaging with Government to remove obstacles to the goal of a 5% growth in GDP in five years’ time.
As one of 22 business sectors actively involved in the PPGI, the water sector submitted a five year plan in April 2019 to the Office of the Presidency. The plan identifies the top three barriers to growth that will be addressed by Government in its National Development Plan.
The President is actively involved in the PPGI, having undertaken to assist in mobilising the funding necessary by both the public and private sectors to support this mission-critical project.
