Minister of Defence says South Africa’s defence will be mandate-driven

The South African National Defence Force plays a constitutionally mandated role to secure our nation. And that is supported by the entire industry that would gather during the five days of Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD2018),” Minister of Defence Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula said at a media briefing today. She highlighted the fact that AAD2018’s theme of “Unlocking Africa’s aerospace and defence potential is very apt, in the sense that the defence industry, including aviation in the widest sense, plays a key role in economic development. The economic footprint of the industry stretches far beyond just the contribution of the country’s GDP. “By unlocking Africa’s aerospace and defence potential, we contribute to stability and growth on our continent: South Africa is a peaceful country that lives in harmony with its neighbours,” she stated. “In fact, we maintain a credible military force to secure our own sovereignty, but also to assist our friends and neighbours in Africa to enjoy peace and stability,” the Minister added. In referring to peace, the Minister reminded the audience that the 10th edition of AAD takes place against the backdrop of our nation commemorating the centenary of the births of former President Nelson Mandela and the struggle veteran Albertina Sisulu. “We remember them fondly: for their great contribution towards the democracy we are sharing in this country and bringing our people together in peace.” The growing threat to cyber-security was a particular issue the Minister highlighted. She said it was of paramount importance that efficient, powerful and cost-effective cyber defence and solutions be implemented to protect our critical information infrastructure. At AAD this year, a partnership with the University of Stellenbosch together with AAD and key industry players will present a platform to unravel key issues of cyber-security. In response to a question from the media, the Minister reiterated that South Africa was taking the issue very seriously and referred to a bill currently before Parliament to address it. All entities in the Security Cluster are focused on finding solutions and as a developing nation, South Africa is seeking collaboration with developed nations. This point was also echoed by Armscor CEO Kevin Wakeford who said that, although South Africa has sufficient internal capacity coordinated through a Cyber Command Centre, the country does not rule out foreign collaboration. On the value of AAD hosted every two years, the Minister highlighted the political aspect of showing the wider world what South Africa has to offer, including the opportunity to establish joint ventures with our industry and sharing intellectual property. There was also the value for money, which goes beyond the monetary value. Finally, since AAD is the biggest defence and aerospace show on the continent and the only one in its particular format, it becomes an African initiative that affords the opportunity for networking and exposure on a broad front. The chairperson of AMD, South Africa’s industry representative association, Florence Musengi, highlighted the value of AAD for small, medium and micro enterprises. Some of the statistics that were shared with the media, were the expected 90 foreign delegations invited from 47 different countries. The exhibition plays host to more than 300 exhibitors from 37 countries. According to Leon Dillmann, chief executive of CAASA, the host partner this year, 129 aircraft are on display, including 76 civilian aircraft and 34 from the SANDF. Nine foreign military aircraft are in attendance at AAD2018. He promised a spectacular display, particularly for the open days, which are preceded by a public holiday on Monday, 24 September. This generally has a positive impact on the air show. Contact: Marketing & Communications Manager: Nakedi Phasha Cell: +27 82 544 3339 – Email: marketingcomms@aadexpo.co.za Thanks & regards

Minister Rob Davies to attend the G20 Trade Ministers Meeting

The Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies will attend the G20 Trade Ministers Meeting on 14 September 2018 in Mar del Plata, Argentina. The Trade Ministers meeting will be preceded by the Trade and Investment Working Group meeting. The Trade Ministers Meeting will focus on key factors for G20 policy making to support participation and upgrading in inclusive Global Value Chains (GVCs) in the agricultural sector at regional and global level. It will also provide a platform for an exchange of experiences on how G20 countries can address the challenges associated with disruptive changes presented by the New Industrial Revolution/ the Fourth Industrial Revolution and leverage the opportunities in order to advance inclusive growth. Minister Davies says GVCs have led to a reconfiguration of trade and investment flows. “Location in the value chain is a critical determinant to how benefits are shared. African countries participate in GVCs mainly as suppliers of primary products. What is required is to preserve policy space to move-up the value chain into production of high-value products in order to promote meaningful participation in GVCs. The NIR on the other hand is leading to unprecedented disruptions in trade and production. The G20 offers an opportunity for the exchange of views on global developments, regulatory framework and policy responses that facilitate leveraging the NIR and managing the challenges to promote inclusive growth.” said Davies. According to Minister Davies, G20 engagements provide South Africa with a platform to discuss, assess, and advance economic and policy issues, and for knowledge transfer on policy practices to foster the country’s development objectives. It also provides a platform for the exchange of views on the current developments in global trade.  “The G20 Trade Ministers is taking place at a time when the multilateral trading system is facing unprecedented challenges. Of concern is the rise of trade measures that are not compatible with the WTO. The G20 Trade Ministers meeting will provide an opportunity for a dialogue on current developments in international trade and its implications for the global economy”, states Davies.  Minister Davies emphasises that South Africa’s participation at the Trade and Investment Ministerial Meeting is to contribute to and shape global trade and investment policy debates by providing views from a developing country standpoint. Davies highlights that the core objective for South Africa in engaging in the G20 is to advance a development oriented perspective in all the issues under discussion that preserves policy space to advance South Africa and Africa’s development integration, promote inclusive growth and structural transformation.  Enquiries: Sidwell Medupe-Departmental Spokesperson Tel: (012) 394 1650 Mobile: 079 492 1774 E-mail: MSMedupe@thedti.gov.za Issued by: The Department of Trade and Industry Follow us on Twitter: @the_dti

Minister Naledi Pandor highlights student funding as major barrier to student success,

Minister Naledi Pandor highlights student funding as major barrier to student success, announces full-cost bursary scheme

The 2018 Siyaphumelela Conference is taking place from 12-14 June 2018 at The Wanderers Club in Johannesburg. The three-day event includes a number of workshops (Tuesday morning) followed by two and a half days of presentations and discussions centering on finding solutions to why students do not succeed at institutions of higher learning.

The workshops address and tackle design thinking, strategies to address national challenges in Higher Education and development of an academic viability model for institutions of higher learning.

The conference was opened by Minister Naledi Pandor (Minister of Higher Education and Training) and in her address, highlighted the adverse effect student funding has on South African students.

“Students who are inadequately funded experience great challenges in regard to food security, suitable accommodation, and ability to obtain textbooks and other resources. These tend to be poor black working class students we need to develop models of funding and support that address their needs. Government has chosen to introduce a full-cost bursary scheme for students whose family income is under R350, 000 a year,” said Pandor.

But while Pandor remarked that she is optimistic about this new bursary scheme, she further highlighted that in addition to funding, students also need academic support.

“Recent research on student expenses in our universities suggests much more work is needed to achieve transformation. While we are on an upward trajectory, we still need to improve throughput rates. We now have a collective responsibility in university education to ensure that most students graduate with a quality degree. To do this means taking responsibility for our students’ success. It means that we have to understand our student’s needs,” she said.

The annual conference is a central aspect of the Siyaphumelela programme that is aimed at improving capacity at South African universities to use data analytics to improve student success. As such the annual conference aim to promote a national discourse on student success initiatives of the Siyaphumelela programme.

Bill Moses Managing Director of the Kresge Foundation, the funder of the conference announced that the Foundation would extend support for the initiative for the next few years. “We need models of funding that fully support students and their needs. With student success, there is no magic bullet. No one consultant, one app, one solution. Student success has to be an approach — not a priority but the priority,” he said.

International guests include Professor Sara Goldrick-Rab (Temple University, Philadelphia), Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox (University of California, Riverside) and Vice Provos Sukhwant Jhaj (Portland State University, Portland).

As the only conference focusing on the use of analytics to promote student success in sub Saharan Africa, the conference provides a platform for international and local experts and practitioners to discuss evidence-based practices and national systemic interventions aimed at student success.

Key people in attendance will be the VCs and DVCs of the five partner institutions: The University of the Witwatersrand, the University of Pretoria, Nelson Mandela University, the University of the Free State and the Durban University of Technology.

Central themes that will be covered over the three days are: basic needs and student success, leadership for student success and design for student success. To view or download the full programme, please go tohttp://www.siyaphumelela.org.za/conf/2018/#!

Sugar value-chain task team has been established to address the challenges facing the industry

A sugar stakeholders meeting that was held at the Department of Trade and Industry’s (the dti) Sunnyside Campus in Pretoria, to discuss the imminent challenges faced by the Sugar Industry, has resolved to establish a Sugar Value-Chain Task Team. The Task Team is between government and the private sector and composed of representatives from Beverage Industry, Retailers, South African Sugar Association (Sasa), small holder farmers, small manufacturers and the Industrial Development Cooperation. The aim of the task team is to seek rapid solutions to the challenges facing the industry focusing on short, medium to long term plans.  The meeting was co-chaired by the Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies and the Minister of Economic Development, Ebrahim Patel.   The first meeting of the Task Team will be held on Wednesday, 30 May 2018. It is expected that joint recommendations from the Task Team will be submitted to the Ministers concerned. The was a view that through collaboration between Government and Private Sector some better solutions in terms of inclusive growth, transformation, competitiveness and sustainability of the industry can be attained   According to the report from SASA Chairman, Mr. Suresh Naidoo, the biggest threat to the industry has been the sustained increase of deep sea sugar imports, peaking at just around 500 000 tons in 2017/18 season. The effect is that this imports displace locally produced sugar into the depressed global sugar market.   The South African Farmers Development Association (Safda) stated that the prices for the sugar cane have declined to such an extent that some growers have received negative statements at the end of the season and in fact owe to the millers.   Safda is of the view that local producers cannot compete against subsidised foreign countries and the sugar producing countries around the world offer their sugar industry a range of policy support measures to protect them against distorted world market.    The Beverage Industry made proposals regarding proposed interventions in support of small holder farmers in the sugar industry and also how to improve productivity in the sugar value chain.   Sugar is a strategic industry in South Africa, contributing an estimated R14-billion to the gross domestic product. The industry employs 85,000 people directly, and indirectly provides work for a further 350,000 people in food processing and other industries.   Issued jointly by the Departments of Economic Development, Forestry & Fisheries and Trade & Industry   Enquiries: Sidwell Medupe-Departmental Spokesperson Tel: (012) 394 1650 Mobile: 079 492 1774 E-mail: MSMedupe@thedti.gov.za Follow us on Twitter: @the_dti

Minister of environmental affairs,clarifies the waste disposal of Listeria contaminated food

 MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS, DR EDNA MOLEWA, CLARIFIES THE WASTE DISPOSAL OF LISTERIA CONTAMINATED FOOD  9 MARCH 2018   The Minister of Environmental Affairs, Dr Edna Molewa, has assured South Africans that all foodstuffs contaminated with Listeria are safely disposed of.   The Minister has announced that the following measures have been put in place to deal with the disposal of the contaminated waste:  
  • The contaminated waste may be accepted for treatment at a licensed incineration, non-burn or co-processing facility, or may be accepted for disposal at a Class A landfill.  Class A landfills are specially designed and engineered for acceptance of hazardous waste and are not accessible for waste picking.
 
  • Any condition of the respective waste management licence of the receiving facility that may prohibit receipt of such waste will be suspended until such time as all of this waste has been treated and/or disposed of.
  The Department of Environmental Affairs has moved to ensure that the measures to prevent any negative consequence of the disposal of these products are urgently put in place.   Waste treatment and disposal facilities have been made aware of these measures as well as  provincial and municipal authorities. Provincial departments of Environment, Municipal Environmental Health Practitioners and officials of the National Department of Environmental Affairs continue to create awareness among waste pickers regarding the risks associated with the contaminated waste.   Minister Molewa expressed concern that the recall had caused some panic where residents ended up throwing their food products into their normal domestic waste bins and this ended up on Municipal Landfills. This took place before the announcements from outlets that food products could be brought in to the various outlets across the country.   “As we know, with the high levels of waste picking in the country, we could have waste pickers accessing the contaminated food if this food ends up in waste disposal facilities accessible to this group of vulnerable people, said the Minister.   These measures will ensure that there is enough capacity in the country to timeously dispose of the infected waste, and remove the possibility of the infected waste being accessed through waste picking activities.   “I believe the measures we have taken will ensure that the constitutional right of our people to a safe and healthy environment is protected,” added Dr Molewa.   For media inquiries contact Albi Modise on 083 490 2871   ISSUED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS
