Government's Programme of Action for 2004 has been updated with respect to progress in implementation. This will be the final update and a new Programme of Action for 2005 will be developed based on the decisions of the Cabinet lekgotla held in January and the President's State of the Nation Address in Parliament on 11 February 2005.
It should be noted that the information in this update, in particular statistical information, was gathered during January and in most cases refers to the situation at the end of December and in some cases earlier than that. More up-to-date information in various instances will be provided in the State of the Nation address and the Parliamentary Media Briefing Week when Ministers will be elaborating on the government programme.
The publication of government's Programme of Action and its regular updating enables the public to follow progress in implementation and ensure that South Africans take active part both in the monitoring and evaluation of government work and in changing their lives for the better.
Government encourages the public to assess our work on the basis of the concrete commitments that we have made, in pursuit of a better life for all.
