Launching the COSATU Document on the Economic Growth Path 16 June 2010

Over the years COSATU has consistently raised concerns that South Africa’s economic policy trajectory was not responding to the need to fundamentally alter the colonial and apartheid contradictions.

We have noted with concern that the apartheid political economy fault lines remain largely in place. This is manifested in the strategic areas of our economy. Structural unemployment remains extremely high, despite modest progress over the past years.

Poverty continues to afflict millions, despite progress registered. Inequalities are now deeper than before. Oppression and super exploitation of workers continues, despite government and union efforts.

At the centre of these challenges has been the absence of a new economic policy for a new growth path. So COSATU has developed proposal on a new growth path policy and the media is invited to attend the launch of this important document on Wednesday 16th June 2010, Youth Day, at COSATU House, 1 Leyds Street, Braamfontein starting at 11:00.
