Presidential Commission On 4IR Presents Draft Diagnostic Report To Ramaphosa

The Presidential Commission on the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) presented its draft diagnostic report to President Cyril Ramaphosa Thursday.

The Commission, chaired by the President with Professor Tshilidzi Marwala as Deputy Chairperson, is tasked with advising government on relevant “policies, strategies and action plans to position South Africa as a smart, connected and competitive global player,” a statement from the presidency said.

The President commended the Commission for the work done thus far, particularly its focus to align the country’s envisaged 4IR strategy to the objectives of the National Development Plan (NDP).

“The work of this Commission is critical to ensuring that we propel our country into the future. This future will be one where South Africa will have a globally competitive, inclusive and shared economy,” said Ramaphosa.


The work of the Commission is centered on eight work streams dealing with the impact of technological advancement on human capital and the future of work, as well social and economic development, the Presidency said.

Ramaphosa further welcomed the Commission’s commitment to practical and tangible recommendations which will be developed in collaboration with, and with the active participation of, a cross section of South Africans.


The final report of the Commission is expected to be finalised by February 2020 and presented to Cabinet for consideration.
