Deputy Minister: Budget Speech - National Council of Provinces (NCOP) - 20 May 2010

21/Twenty One Days from the Opening of the World Cup, our country is abuzz with excitement! Our media have dedicated programmes and space to showcase the build-up to the tournament. The private sector is fully behind all campaigns such as Football Friday, Fly the Flag, and the 2010 Countdown programme we see South Africans united in hosting the best ever FIFA World Cup. In fact we have UNITED in our DIVERSITY! We have no doubt that the socio-economic impact of the FIFA 2010 World cup will be felt long after the event. During the construction phase of our preparations we were clear that low income households should benefit from the infrastructure development programme. We now know that more than 100 000 workers have been employed - either directly or indirectly through the 2010 construction programme.
