Whether any computer parts are produced in the Republic; if so, (a) what computer parts are produced in the Republic, (b) where are the computer parts produced, (c) what is the value of computer parts produced and (d) what number of people are employed in the production process?

Reply:

Even though South Africa has capabilities in computer manufacturing, the Intellectual Property (IP) rests with the Original Equipment Manufacturers, all of which are foreign. Companies which are involved in computer manufacturing are mainly involved in assembly and contract manufacturing. There is a huge downstream opportunity in the value chain for some parts which could be sourced from local manufacturers for components which make up a computer. For example, the casings are made of plastic which could be sourced locally.

Are any microchips produced in the Republic; if so, (a) where are the microchips produced, (b) what is the value of microchips produced and (c) what number of people are employed in the production process?

Reply:

Microchips are produced mainly in Asia and the United States for the global market by companies such as Samsung, Intel and Taiwan Semiconductor manufacturing company. Due to economies of scale considerations, coupled with the quantum of investment required, the capability and the capacity to produce microchips anywhere else in the world is limited. There are therefore no microchips produced in the Republic.

(1) What number of (a) direct and (b) indirect jobs were created as a result of the investment at the (i) Dube Trade Port and (ii) Durban Harbour. (2) Whether small, medium and micro-sized enterprises owned by women and youth benefitted from the investment; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details? NW667E

Reply:

In terms of direct jobs, Dube TradePort (DTP) SEZ has to date created a total of 3246 direct jobs. During Financial year 2017/18 alone, 429 new direct jobs and 974 construction jobs were created. During the current financial year 2018/19, as at 18 March 2019, 184 new direct jobs and a total of 2020 construction jobs have been created. In addition, more than 250 new direct jobs are expected to be created during 2019 by a newly signed investor that is expected to operate by April 2019.

Based on the Economic-wide impact study conducted by DTP, a total of 130009 were created in KwaZulu-Natal as results of investments made at DTP.

The Small, Medium and Micro-Sized Enterprises (SMME) empowerment, integration and development is one of the key pillars of the SEZ programme. Dube TradePort is one of the SEZs that have successfully been and continue to support SMMEs, particularly with regards to infrastructure development, provision of services and manufacturing.

During 2016/17 financial year, approximately 40 % of the DTP’s spend on infrastructure was paid to SMMEs. During financial year 2017/18, 67.3% of the total expenditure on suppliers was on black owned businesses. The current financial year, as at 18 March 2019, the infrastructure spend committed to SMME was R157.4 million.

In addition, DTP is currently constructing 18 mini factories within the zone, and they are at 88% complete. These mini factories will serve as a platform to house strategic SMMEs looking for manufacturing or office space. The size of each mini factory is around 249 m². To date DTP has spent R9.3 million on infrastructure development and R1.7 million on SMMEs creating 264 addition construction jobs through this project.

Reply:

1(a) An amount of: R97 948 634.00 was paid by CIPRO to Valor IT.

1(b) No amount was recovered from Valor IT as the litigation is still pending.

1(c) Amount lost by CIPRO: R97 948 634.

(2)      There was no monetary value derived from the contract.

(3)       Consultations regarding the investigation and institution of charges of fraud took place with the Special Investigations Unit of the South African Police Services. To the best of my knowledge these investigations never resulted in criminal prosecution being instituted.

(4)        Suspension notices were served on the then CEO of CIPRO Mr Keith Sendwe and the CIO of CIPRO Mr Micheal Twum Darko.

Mr Sendwe passed away during the course of the investigation and Mr Twum Darko’s contract expired prior to any disciplinary processes being completed.

(5)       Since 2010, content management requirements of the CIPC were addressed by innovating and developing extensions to the existing legacy systems using internal resources. This has been limited to specific and identified development using digital image file extensions and the use of email to replicate workflow processes. This is served by an eServices portal, self service terminals, USSD and mobility applications that permit customer interfacing and identified biometric/DHA authentication in a digital/dematerialised format. CIPC also recently concluded a number of tenders that provide the base software and data components that will enable procurement, development and deployment of the CIPC ECM requirements.

(a)What is the status of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Commission’s investigation into the dispute between a certain person (name furnished) and a certain company (name and details furnished), (b) on what date was the case first brought to the commission and (c) on what date will the (i) investigation be completed and (ii) findings be released?

Reply:

According to the B-BBEE Commission:

(a) The matter has been investigated and the parties agreed to consider alternative dispute resolution in terms of regulation 15 (11) of the BBBEE Regulations. The draft alternative dispute resolution agreement was sent to the parties following a round-table meeting on 4 December 2018 and the B-BBEE Commission still has not received input on the draft alternative dispute resolution agreement from the complainant.

(b) The B-BBEE Commission received the complaint on 31 July 2017 from Mr. Aobakwe Tabe on behalf of his ailing mother Ms Ida Tabe.

(c) During the investigation, Hotazel Motors (Pty) Ltd requested the B-BBEE Commission to facilitate the resolution of this through regulation 15(11) of the B-BBEE Regulations. The complainant was consulted, both parties agreed to consider alternative dispute resolution, and it was made clear that in the event that this process fails to resolve the matter, the B-BBEE Commission will proceed to finalise the investigation and issue its findings, with or without recommendations. A round-table was held with all the parties, and the draft alternative dispute resolution agreement was drafted by the B-BBEE Commission as agreed and sent to all parties for their input and response on 4 December 2018. The alternative dispute resolution agreement was signed by Hotazel Motors (Pty) Ltd on 12 December 2018, however, Mr Aobakwe Tabe requested several additional documents which were duly furnished to him. The B-BBEE Commission still awaits feedback from Mr Aobakwe Tabe despite numerous follow-ups to date. If the B-BBEE Commission concludes that Mr Aobakwe Tabe has been afforded sufficient opportunity to respond but has not done so, the B-BBEE Commission will have no choice but to declare the alternative dispute resolution process unsuccessful and proceed to make its findings, with or without recommendations, on the matter as required in the B-BBEE Regulations and the B-BBEE Act.

(c)(i) The B-BBEE Commission will make its findings any time after the alternative dispute resolution process is declared unsuccessful. Meanwhile, the B-BBEE Commission has been affording indulgence to Mr Aobakwe Tabe to provide his input and response to the alternative dispute resolution agreement.

(c)(ii) The B-BBEE Commission is required to afford the respondent thirty (30) days to respond to the findings in terms of regulation 15 (13) of the B-BBEE Regulations prior to issuing its final findings, and thereafter it may publish its findings. The B-BBEE Commission is, however, not permitted to publish its findings if the respondent institutes a judicial review or if the period allowed for such process has not lapsed.

What was the contribution of artificial intelligence to the gross domestic product in 2018?

Reply:

i) Artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines. At the present time, there is no globally agreed methodology for calculating the contribution of artificial intelligence to gross domestic product (GDP).

ii) Nevertheless, it is expected that AI will impact economies in at least three inter-related ways. Firstly, on the production side the deployment of artificial intelligence capabilities will raise the productivity of firms by reducing costs, and/or production time, and/or improve product customisation.

iii) Secondly, on the consumption side artificial intelligence will upgrade or fundamentally modify traditional goods and/or services, thereby increasing their utility and value to consumers. In additional, artificial intelligence will likely reduce the time required for routine tasks to be concluded, thereby freeing consumers’ time which can be spent on other activities including consumption of other goods and services.

iv) According to Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC), 2017, “AI to drive GDP gains of $15.7 trillion with productivity, personalisation improvements”, global GDP will be 14% higher in 2030 as a result of artificial intelligence.

How many tons of steel has the country produced in each of the past 15 years?

Reply:

Over the past 15 years, South Africa’s primary steel industry consisted of the following major flat and long steel producers: ArcelorMittal SA, Evraz Highveld Steel and Vanadium, Cape Gate, Columbus Stainless Steel and SCAW. Small mini-mill players (Agni Steel, Fortune Steel, SA Steel Mills, Cape Town Iron and Steel Works and Veer Steel Mills have started operation in recent years.

The steel industry has been in decline in the last 15 years. Apart from weak demand, a major cause of the decline is the influx of steel imports which adversely affect the profitability and capacity utilization rates of the domestic steel producers. This trend has been aggravated over the years by massive global excess capacity, high production costs and aged plants.

The table and diagram below depict the decline from 2004 where production was 9.4 million tons per annum compared to current production of 6.3 million tons per annum in 2018. Highveld Steel and Vanadium closed in 2015 accounting for a reduction in 1 million tons per annum of steel capacity.

What has he found to have been the impact of loadshedding on economic production in the period 1 January 2018 to 12 February 2019?

Reply:

It is impossible to estimate with a significant degree of accuracy, what the impact of loadshedding has been until the production data for the period is released by Statistics South Africa (StatsSA).

Nevertheless, loadshedding is likely to have had a significant impact on Manufacturing and Mining production. There are a number of ways in which this happens.

They include plant shutdowns where production is substantially delayed. In some cases, this production can be recovered when power is restored, by the factory running an additional shift or working overtime, although this has a direct impact on the cost of production.

In sectors such as Food-processing, an entire batch of production may need to be discarded if there is an electricity interruption which prevents an important step in the production process from being concluded.

Under these circumstances, the loss to the firm and the economy can be calculated as the value of the inputs which have to be discarded, or, the potential market value of production and associated taxes which would have accrued to the company and government respectively had the production process been successfully concluded.

It is due to the likely significant impact on economic production, that the President of the Republic has assigned a high-level Cabinet team to oversee and advise on how best to strengthen Eskom and reduce the likelihood and incidence of loadshedding.

1. The total cost of the study on the Agency Rationalisation was R487 200.

2. The Department commissioned the Agency Rationalisation Report and the findings were accepted as the study provided a good basis to inform and guide the decision making processes within the Department. One of the main recommendations was to move from a board governance structure to a commission (regulator) structure as boards were found to be generally ineffective. The commission or regulator without a board structure was the decision taken by the Department except for one entity that has a different funding model. Research findings serve as guidelines and may be implemented by the Department.

From 2014 onwards our manufacturing sector has broadly mirrored the trend exhibited by the developed and developing countries which indicate periods of expansions and contractions.

(b) The past decade of implementing the Industrial Policy Action Plan (IPAP) needs to be understood in relation to the global financial crisis of 2008-2009 and the extended economic crisis which flowed in its wake. The ensuing slump in global demand for many of South Africa commodities resulted in a slowing down of exports and investment in South Africa. In addition, surplus global capacity in the production of many key commodities has created huge challenges for South African manufacturing.

These factors combined with significant domestic economic shocks including, sharply rising and bunched up administered prices, deterioration in basic economic service delivery by key state owned companies and economic infrastructure constraints, skills deficit and mismatches negatively impacted the domestic economy and the re- industrialisation effort through IPAP.

(c ) The Black Industrialist Scheme has been established to facilitate the inclusion and participation of black industrialists in the South African economy. The intention of the Scheme is to contribute towards shifting the demographic composition of South Africa’s industrial sector and to engage under-utilised sources of jobs, revenue, taxes and innovation through the Black Industrialist Scheme.

(d) The Scheme has (i) added additional production capacity to the manufacturing sector across a range of IPAP priority sectors, (ii) become more competitive through technology driven production processes and innovations, (iii) grow through projected investments of R8.6 billion in 2016/17 and 2017/18 and (iv) created 9 138 projected new job opportunities and helped to sustain 6 373 jobs during the same period.

 

3. The Department conducts programmatic impact assessments for example, periodic review of incentive programmes is undertaken to assess whether their objectives and outcomes are being realised and that review informs their future development. It is important to note that, the deployed interventions to change the growth trajectory rest on sound economic research and analysis including with respect to the identification of market failures and the most appropriate measures required to address these. Inherent in this process is a review of interventions deployed to assess their impact and effectiveness. Anecdotal evidence points to the fact that government’s resolute counter-cyclical industrialisation efforts arrested the scale of job losses, preventing potentially catastrophic full-scale deindustrialisation.

The following successes have been registered but they do not represent an exhaustive list of all the outcomes and progress platforms built in the course of the previous years. They serve as a snapshot of a much more substantive body of work which underpins these achievements, based on a set of critical and indispensable principles for industrial policy and industrial development:

  • Manufacturing value-added in real terms grew from R338 billion in 2009 to R384 billion in 2017;
  • Since 2007/08 manufactured exports grew four-fold compared to imports that have doubled. Manufactured exports were dominated by metals, metal products and machinery and equipment;
  • Manufactured exports have continued to diversify and have also been bolstered by robust growth in manufactured exports to Africa;
  • In the automotive sector exports have more than doubled over the last decade and the sector has attracted R45 billion in investment by the majority of the leading global automotive manufacturers; and
  • The Clothing and Textile Competitiveness Programme approved R5.1 billion to manufacturers in the sector and disbursed R4.2 billion to recipients of the incentive. A very significant turn-around in the fortunes of the Clothing, Textile, Leather and Footwear industry has been achieved, bringing relief to a sector which was in deep distress. Not only has the tide been turned with respect to factory closures and lay-offs; gains have been registered in recapturing domestic market share and developing close working relationships between government, manufacturers and domestic retailers. A modest increase in exports has also been achieved; most notably in the footwear sector.

 

4. The Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) in the Presidency is tasked with reviewing government’s plans and policies as a whole in order to improve service delivery, outcomes and impact on society. Thus the need to amend or replace any policy will be informed by the monitoring and evaluation processes of DPME as they are constitutionally mandated to monitor, evaluate and report on the implementation of government priorities in line with the National Development Plan.

Are white unemployed youth excluded from the Youth Employment Service (YES) programme; if so, on what basis?

Reply:

Youth Unemployment is one of the largest challenges the world faces, with the challenge particularly high in South Africa. Young workers in South Africa face very low prospects of finding employment. Many job seekers are excluded from these social networks as a result of being in a non-working household, spatially isolated, or racial and gender issues.

The Youth Employment Service (Y.E.S) initiative aims to improve the grim employment outlook for young work seekers, by offering a first chance of quality work experience for young work seekers.

The YES initiative was created for all Unemployed Youth of the country. However, for the purpose of B-BBEE recognition will only be awarded to Entities that employ Eligible Employees which are between the ages of 18 and 35 and meet the definition of “Black People” as defined in the B-BBEE Act 53 of 2003 as amended by Act 46 of 2013.

Profile picture: Horn, Mr W

Horn, Mr W to ask the Minister of Trade and Industry

Whether, since he served in Cabinet, he (a)(i) was ever influenced by any person and/or (ii) influenced any of his department’s employees to take any official administrative action on behalf of any (aa) member, (bb) employee and/or (cc) close associate of the Gupta family and/or (b) attended any meeting where any of the specified persons were present; if so, what are the relevant details in each case?

Reply:

(a) No.

(b) As previously indicated, including in an engagement with the former Public Protector as she was preparing her report “The State of Capture”, I met with members of the Gupta family on a number of occasions between 2009 and 2013. As Minister of Trade and Industry, my work involves frequent interactions with a wide range of business people as well as actual or potential investors.

In 2009, I received a request to meet with Duduzane Zuma to discuss some of his business ideas. I knew Duduzane since he was a child in Maputo and agreed to a meeting at my residence in Cape Town. Mr Zuma arrived with Mr Ajay Gupta and this was the first time that I met a member of that family. Mr Gupta told me that his company had spent a considerable sum on preparation of a feasibility study for a mining project, which had been submitted to the IDC. He complained that the application was taking a long time to process and that they were in danger of losing the option to buy from the existing owners. If this happened, he said, hundreds of workers would lose their jobs.

As with innumerable similar representations made to me both before and since, I responded saying that as Minister I could not and would not get involved in deciding on the merits of any particular application. That was the task of professionals employed to assess applications according to defined criteria. In this regard I had confidence in the robustness of the procedures of the IDC, overseen by a board then chaired by the wife of a prominent opposition politician. I did, however, say I would refer his complaint of the time delay to the IDC - as I have with numerous other similar complaints with regard to procedures by the department or agencies reporting to it.

The IDC advised me that they would assemble a team to take the application to the point of decision and I left it at that. I was never advised as to whether the project had merit or otherwise, nor did I give or receive any directive as to the outcome of the decision. Shortly thereafter the IDC ceased reporting to the Minister of Trade and Industry and I heard nothing further of the progress of this application.

The period after 2009, was one in which government made considerable effort to enhance South-South relations, including with India bilaterally and within the context of BRICS. I participated in numerous business fora, both in South Africa and India, organised by different formations in both countries. Members of the Gupta family attended a number of these.

In a few occasions (maybe 5 or 6 times) I accepted invitations to social events organised by members of the Gupta family (as at the time did many other politicians, including the Premier of the Western Cape, Helen Zille). These included a cultural event on the side-lines of an international cricket match and on occasions, I also went to a few events at their residence. Most of these were social occasions where several other people were also present. On very few occasions, I accepted personal dinner invitations with my wife at which the mother of the Gupta brothers was also present. Discussion on these occasions were broad and general and mostly social in nature with an emphasis at the time on the value of deepening economic relations with India. They also informed me, in general terms, of their plans to establish a new Newspaper.

To the knowledge of the Ministry, approximately 6 years ago a meeting at the request of the Gupta family was held at the dti offices in Tshwane. This was attended by myself and dti officials. The nature of this meeting was similar to innumerable other meetings of the type with other potential investors, both domestic and foreign. My consistent message on all such occasions (and in all interactions with members of the Gupta family) was that requests for access to any programme or facility should be directed to the department or agency concerned following the prescribed procedure and would be decided on by officials charged with assessing such applications according to defined criteria. In the event no follow up meetings were requested or held.

On one occasion I was invited, while on a visit to Mumbai, to a warehouse where computers assembled at the family’s facilities in South Africa were received for export to India. At the end of this visit, I was given a laptop computer. I subsequently donated this for use by the Small Enterprise Development Agency and showed the documentation on this to the former Public Protector.

I attended the family’s wedding at Sun City, largely because I was under the impression that there would be a number of Indian business people and government officials it would be with while interacting with. That, in fact, did not materialise. Thereafter I have had no direct contact with any member of the Gupta family.

As indicated earlier, the information given above was shared with the former Public Protector and her team, who interviewed me in preparation of her report, “The State of Capture”. I am similarly prepared to interact with the Zondo Commission or its investigators in any way they see fit.

What (a) is the black economic empowerment (BEE) arrangement regarding the potential Mineral Commodities mine in Xolobeni, (b) are the names of the BEE beneficiaries and (c) is the company number of each specified BEE beneficiary?

Reply:

The application for mineral commodities mine rights in Xolobeni would be done through the Department of the Minerals (DMR). The DMR regulate the mining sector amongst other using the Mining Charter which spells out how BEE should be arranged and implemented in the mining sector. The DMR is therefore the appropriate National Department to furnish information regarding entities that applied for mineral commodities mining rights as well as their BEE credential and plans as the process is governed by the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, 28 of 2002, of which the DMR is the custodian.

(1)On what date was his department first made aware of G4S’s refusal to abide by its Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) Employee Share Ownership Plan, whereby 13% of the company would be allocated to a G4S staff trust to comply with its BBBEE agreements, with employees becoming shareholders and being entitled to dividends after five years of uninterrupted service; (2) whether his department is investigating the matter; if so, (a) what is the status of the investigation and (b) on what date did the investigation start? NW3038E

Reply:

1. According to the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Commission (“B-BBEE Commission”), some G4S employees visited its offices on 13 June 2017 for informal guidance and process to be undertaken on a matter where employees believed there may be a violation of the B-BBEE Act. The employees were advised to lodge a complaint and provide details of the issue for consideration by the B-BBEE Commission.

On 5 April 2018 following a media report on the G4S employee ownership scheme, the B-BBEE Commission decided to intervene on its own initiative in the absence of a complaint to gather details of the scheme to determine if the scheme is compliant to the B-BBEE Act. A letter was dispatched to G4S on 13 April 2018 requesting the entity to provide all relevant documents in relation to the trust and its B-BBEE status for the B-BBEE Commission to determine whether the scheme is compliant to the B-BBEE Act.

Pursuant to receipt of requested documents, a meeting was held on 21 June 2018 with representatives of G4S to obtain further clarity on the ownership structure of G4S in detail with specific focus on the employee trust as one of the reported black shareholders in the company. Further documents and information were received from G4S subsequent to the meeting.

Subsequent to the B-BBEE Commission’s intervention, the B-BBEE Commission received a formal complaint on 16 July 2018, which is being considered in terms of the B-BBEE regulations as part of this process. The matter is receiving attention and the B-BBEE Commission will communicate its decision regarding the matter in due course in the interest of the public.

2. According to the B-BBEE Commission, the matter is under consideration in line with regulation 15 of the B-BBEE Regulations, and the B-BBEE Commission is not in a position to communicate on this matter at this stage as this may prejudice the complaint process and the parties thereto.

(1)Whether he has followed through to ensure that a certain case (details furnished) has been concluded in accordance with his instruction to the Chief Executive Officer of the National Credit Regulator (NCR); if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) whether he intends to take any action against the NCR or Wesbank relating to the specified matter; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?NW3017E

Reply:

1. Mr Mapeka referred his case to the National Consumer Tribunal alleging that Wesbank failed to sell his vehicle as soon as reasonably possible and at the best price reasonably possible. On 5 November 2009 the National Consumer Tribunal handed judgement wherein it directed the National Credit Regulator to investigate the matter and provide a report within three (3) months. The National Credit Regulator complied with the judgement and submitted the required report on 26 January 2010. Wesbank offered to write off the outstanding balance and delist Mr Mapeka at the credit bureaus. The offer was accepted by Mr Mapeka on 06 May 2010 and the matter was regarded as finalized.

Mr Mapeka subsequently sued Wesbank in the Bloemfontein High Court demanding compensation for pain and suffering caused by Wesbank. The Court dismissed his application. Mr Mapeka then approached the National Consumer Tribunal again seeking damages. On 11 November 2014 the National Consumer Tribunal dismissed Mr Mapeka’s case. When the Bloemfontein High Court and the National Consumer Tribunal dismissed his applications, Mr Mapeka, if still in disagreement with the judgements, should have referred his case to the Supreme Court of Appeal.

The NCR has no legal mandate to adjudicate over claims for damages concerning pain and suffering. Ordinary courts of law are the most appropriate fora to decide on such matters.

2. In dealing with Mr Mapeka’s case, the National Credit Regulator fully complied with its legislative mandate as per the National Credit Act 34 of 2005.

With reference to the ongoing debate on the expropriation of land without compensation and the nationalisation of the SA Reserve Bank (SARB), (a) on what number of occasions have representatives from his department met with their American counterparts to unpack the unfolding debate on both matters, (b) what has the feedback been from each meeting and (c) what effect has he found that the expropriation of land without compensation and the nationalisation of the SARB had with respect to South Africa’s continued participation in the African Growth and Opportunity Act, 2000?

Reply:

a) The dti officials have met with the US Embassy no less than three times between June and August 2018. All these discussions were aimed at exchanging views and sharing information on bilateral trade and investment issues between South Africa and the US. Discussion on the ongoing debate on land expropriation arose in this context, and was not more prominent than other issues under discussion. The nationalisation of the SA Reserve Bank (SARB) was never raised in the discussions between the dti and the US Embassy.

b) The discussions have been mostly to discuss recent developments such as the US Section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminium imports into the US and their impact on South Africa’s AGOA benefits. In the few instances where the US raised the land issue, the dti provided an update and explained the transparent and responsible approach that will be followed in decision making. The Embassy emphasised that the US government would not be taking sides but had an interest in seeing a legal and constitutional resolution of the issue.

c) In all the meetings with US Embassy, no links were made on land expropriation without compensation and AGOA. The US State Department, as indicated in its statement, recognises the complexities of the land reform programme and its intention to ensure equitable distribution of land in South Africa. There is also recognition that South Africa’s land reform programme will be undertaken through a Constitutional process that is inclusive and transparent and will be carried out in accordance with the laws of the country. The World Bank has also published a study on “Overcoming the legacy of exclusion in South Africa” which states that a well- managed system of land distribution is essential to redressing the country’s economic inequality. The President’s statements on this issue have also assisted to communicate a clear message to all trade partners on the approach to land reform which aims to ensure that the land reform aims to boost the productive use of land to promote sustainable development. Furthermore, land reform will be undertaken taking due consideration of the need to promote food security and the implications for other sectors of the economy. There is also recognition of the ability of South Africa to handle complicated issues of national interest having managed to find a peaceful solution in resolving apartheid and in moving towards a democratic dispensation.
