What is the Partnership?

first_imgOne of the biggest impacts from hosting the 2010 FIFA World Cup will come from the phenomenal marketing and communication opportunity it will offer the country and continent. As world attention focuses on the first African World Cup this is an opportunity for Africans to tell their own stories.The 2010 National Communication Partnership is a joint effort of communicators across society and in the many creative and communication disciplines to take advantage of this communication opportunity of a lifetime to benefit our country and continent.The 2010 Tournament itself is FIFA’s event, made possible by sponsorship in return for exclusive marketing rights for the tournament itself. The Partnership respects absolutely these marketing rights.The Partnership’s communication is in a different sphere. Its communication objectives are to take advantage of this opportunity of a lifetime to express and further build unity and pride amongst South Africans; to inspire our youth; to market the country and continent to the world; to build African solidarity and to create a communication climate that helps use this chance to speed up development and expand opportunities.The Partnership is one of the ways people across sectors in South Africa and Africa are coming together to prepare for the greatest sporting event on earth.The Role of the PartnershipThe Partnership’s role is to promote coordinated local and international communication, so that the many communication agencies and role-players speak with one powerful voice to maximise the benefit of hosting the 2010 FIFA World Cup for the country and continent.The Partnership provides a strategic framework for communication – a point of reference – for communicators in the period leading up to and during 2010.Its function is to promote coherence of message and to provide forums for information sharing and coordination, mutual support for campaigns, strategy formation, and to jointly address issues as they arise.The Partnership is not a new communication agency. Its many member entities – SA Tourism, the International Marketing Council, Dept of Sports and Recreation, South African Airways, Government, Proudly South African, the Organising Committee, private sector and civil society – will embark on communication in the context of 2010 as per their respective mandates and roles.But communication will be more powerful because communicators are working together in partnership, sharing a common vision and common messages.last_img read more

‘Teach your children about their rights’

first_img7 March 2014The government has encouraged South African parents and communities at large to educate their children on their rights during this year’s Human Rights month.Section 28 of South Africa’s Constitution a is devoted to children and outlines the rights that they are entitled to.“It is important that children are cognisant of their rights,” acting Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) CEO Phumla Williams said in Pretoria on Friday, calling on parents, communities and children to engage in conversations around children’s rights, and to teach children to speak up when they feel that their rights have been violated.“Parents should continually engage their children about issues such as rape, inappropriate touching, bullying, violence and abuse, amongst others,” Williams said. “The important step is for a child to report any incident or behaviour that may be associated with the infringement of their rights.”Children are encouraged to report such incidents to parents, teachers, or any person that they trust. Children can also call Childline on 08 000 55 555.Williams said the government had gone to great lengths to ensure that laws and other mechanisms were in place to safeguard children’s rights.“There are also government-led outreach initiatives that educate the public on the rights of children. However, parents and communities also play an integral part in punting the message.”Call to celebrate Human Rights DayOn Thursday, meanwhile, the Cabinet called on South Africans to celebrate Human Rights Day on 21 March. This year’s Human Rights Day will be held under the theme: “Celebrating 20 years of changing lives through human rights”.President Jacob Zuma is expected to address the main Human Rights Day celebration in Sharpeville, Gauteng – the scene of the Sharpeville Massacre of 21 March 1960, when police opened fire on unarmed people protesting against apartheid’s pass laws, killing 69 and injuring 180 others.South Africa declared 21 March a public holiday in 1994, following the inauguration of former president Nelson Mandela.“Cabinet calls on South Africans to celebrate living in a country that guarantees that never again will humanity be taken from any South African, irrespective of their race, gender, creed or sexual orientation,” Williams told reporters in Pretoria on Thursday following the Cabinet’s latest meeting.“We all have a responsibility to ensure that our human rights record and history are preserved and strengthened for future generations.”Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Finance Minister Optimistic of Growth for Fiscal Year

first_img Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Hon. Audley Shaw, is optimistic that the economy will record positive growth for 2017/18, despite a contraction in the first financial quarter.“We are still holding to an economic growth for the fiscal year of about 1.7 to two per cent, which will still be above the 1.3 per cent that we had last year,” he said.Mr. Shaw was speaking to journalists following the opening ceremony of the Factories Corporation of Jamaica (FCJ) business and wellness expo at the Garmex Free Zone and Industrial Estate, Marcus Garvey Drive, on Wednesday (October 18).The Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) reported that the economy recorded negative growth of 0.1 per cent in the April to June quarter.Minister Shaw explained that the negative growth was due to a combination of drought at the start of the calendar year and flood rains at the beginning of the fiscal year.“When we did a further analysis of the areas of growth and lack of growth, there were only two sectors that did not grow in the June quarter. Those were agriculture and mining. Both of them should show improvement in the third quarter, because we had favourable weather conditions,” he pointed out.“You can’t judge anything by one quarter. You have to judge it by the overall picture of what is happening in the economy (and the overall picture) continues to be positive,” he added.Meanwhile, the Finance Minister noted that the new owner of the Alpart alumina plant in Nain, St. Elizabeth, Jiuquan Iron & Steel Company Limited (JISCO) intends to invest some US$2 billion in the sector over time, including a new alumina plant.He noted that this was a positive for the economy, as, already, the company has invested in excess of US$360 million on its Jamaican operations.“We have other projects in the pipeline, like a major project we have slated for Vernamfield. When all of these are put together, including the addition of 14,000 hotel rooms over the next four years – 3,000 of that are in place already – you are looking at between US$16 billion to US$20 billion worth of investment,” Mr. Shaw said.Meanwhile, the Finance Minister said the Government will be looking at changing the method of measuring economic growth in Jamaica.“The way that STATIN is measuring it now, they are using a base year of 1998. The developed world is using a base year of 2008; that is a 10-year difference. What are some of the major sectors you ensure that you implant into the measurement process… that has to be reviewed as well,” Mr. Shaw said.
