The African National Congress in its 53rd National Conference held in Mangaung adopted the National Development Plan (NDP). The economic resolution adopting the NDP states as follows.
"The ANC must take the lead in mobilising and uniting all South Africans around a common vision of economic transformation that puts South Africa first. The National Development Plan is a living and dynamic [our emphasis] document and articulates a vision which is broadly in line with our objective to create a national democratic society, and should be used as a common basis for this mobilisation. The ANC will continue to engage with the plan, conscious of the need to unite South Africans in action around a common vision and programme of change [our emphasis]" (p. 22).
