Draft Defence Sector Codes of Good Practice
The Department of Trade and Industry has published the Draft Defence Sector Codes of Good Practice for public comment. "1. PREAMBLE The Defence Sector Code aims, within the defence industry, to give effect to the constitutionally enshrined right to equality by addressing the systemic past exclusion of Black people from participating in the economy, which effects remain firmly in place."
2. VISION A fully transformed, revitalized defence industry with effective and sustainable economic participation by black people as employees, managers, entrepreneurs, industrialists, developers, and shareholders. 3. MISSION To create a framework for the meaningful and sustainable transformation and growth of the South African defence industry through ownership, management, skills development, enterprise and supplier development programmes."
