WHAT IS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT?
In broad terms, economic development involves the development of human capital, increasing the literacy ratio, improving important infrastructure, improvement of health and safety and other initiatives which aim to improve the general welfare of citizens.
EDS views economic development as a holistic approach to transformation and uses all the elements of BBBEE together with the Employment Equity Act and Skills Development Act to provide the legislative context. In addition, the creation of job opportunities, the development of a skilled workforce and the establishment of a local supply chain (localisation), all feed into the successful implementation of economic development within South Africa.
