Executive Committee

Executive Committee responsibilities

To achieve its outcomes, the initiative requires a small but well represented executive body, able to take responsibility of overseeing the implementation of associated projects and interventions. Activities designated as part of the executive function of the initiative, but which are to be considered distinct from the execution of project deliverables associated with the strategic focus areas, are:

w

Executive committee meetings

Executive committee meeting facilitation and stakeholder engagement meetings

k

Activity support

Executive Committee structure

The structure of the Executive Committee reflects a partnership between government, industry and labour. It consists of:

  • Four supplier representatives (one from the Eastern Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu- Natal and Western Cape regions)
  • One representative from the National Association of Automotive Component and Allied Manufacturers (NAACAM)
  • Two representatives from the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa (NAAMSA)
  • Two representatives from the Department of Trade and Industry (dti)
