Remarks by the Chairperson

Dr Motshekga thanked Members for the confidence they had in him. He said the establishment of the Committee was a great step for the hard-won democracy and to carry out the beliefs of Nelson Mandela that there must be no oppression of one race by another. The establishment of the Committee would send a strong message to the people and world that the ANC-led government would resolve to address the challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment, and that it would complete its work within the stipulated timeframe.

The Ad Hoc Committee would ensure all submissions receive equal weight and would put the interests of South Africa and her economic well-being on top of the agenda.

The Committee would meet soon to discuss its draft programme.

The meeting was adjourned.
