The DTIC was likely to meet its target of 8 000 jobs through the incentive for the business processing outsourcing sector. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, this remained a growing sector with a strong partnership between the DTIC and the private sector.
The DPWI had exceeded its target by appointing 1 888 young professionals to work on rural bridges and other programmes. These programmes were run by entities such as the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) so that implementation could continue into the next financial year. They were therefore likely to meet all their targets.
