Achieving accelerated and shared growth for South Africa

The formulation of the Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative for South Africa (AsgiSA) was in many ways an impressive process. The government consulted widely with social partners and sought international expert opinion on economic development. The result was a strategy that first identified a limited number of constraints to faster and more broadly shared growth, and then outlined a set of policy interventions to remove those constraints. AsgiSA set targets for growth for 2006-10 and 2011-14 aimed at meeting the government’s previously determined objective of halving unemployment and poverty by 2014.
