President Ramaphosa Appoints SALGA CEO To The Commission On Fourth Industrial Revolution

 

 

 


Posted: 25 April 2019

SALGA congratulates CEO, Xolile George on his appointment as a member of the Presidential Commission on the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). The 30-member Commission, comprising of individuals from various sectors of society was announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa. The Commission, which will be Chaired by the President, will assist the South African government in taking advantage of the opportunities presented by the digital industrial revolution as well as to identify relevant policies, strategies and action plans that will position South Africa as a competitive global player.

In his State of the Nation Address to a Joint Sitting of Parliament on Thursday, 7 February 2019, President Ramaphosa said South Africa had chosen to be a country of the future at a time when the world was changing at a pace and in a manner that was unprecedented in human history. He said revolutionary advances in technology were reshaping the way people work and live. “Unless we adapt, unless we understand the nature of the profound change that is reshaping our world, and unless we readily embrace the opportunities it presents, the promise of our nation’s birth will forever remain unfulfilled,” the President said.

In the same Address, the President announced the establishment of a Presidential Commission on 4IR.
In establishing the Commission, a public consultation process was undertaken to attract eminent people who possess relevant skills and knowledge required to drive 4IR.  The 30-member Commission comprises eminent persons from different sectors of society. Operational support to the Commission will be provided by a secretariat of officials of various national departments, led by the Department of Communications.

President Ramaphosa has wished the Commission well in its endeavours and has expressed his appreciation to commissioners for availing themselves to serve the nation in an important determinant of South Africa’s development trajectory in the coming years and decades.

Minister of Communications Ms Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams, who is the coordinator of government’s 4IR programme, is due to convene an induction session with appointed commissioners, after which the Commission will have its inaugural meeting with the President.

SALGA would like to congratulate members of the Commission and wish them well.
