Minister in the Presidency, Trevor Manuel, has released the final version of the National Development Plan (NDP) in Parliament.
Manual says that the main aim of the plan is to grow the number of employed people from 11 million to 24 million by 2030.
"In the early years, emphasis will be on absorbing the unemployed, especially young people, into economic activity," the plan says.
The plan further says the government will commit to a number of priorities including, the doubling of the annual expansion in high-skills supply and improving education, improving the labour relations environment and expanding public employment programmes rapidly.
