Speech - Deputy Minister Oosthuizen at the Media Launch of the National Sport Indaba - 5 Apr 2011

Under the leadership of Minister Mbalula we have developed a “Road Map” for the department and have ensured alignment with the key policy issues as captured in the White Paper. To assist with the implementation of the White Paper we have started the process of developing a National Sport Plan. It is from Policy to Practice; This Sport Plan will manifest the implementation plans of the sport and recreation policy directives of Government. Underpinned by the White Paper, the National Sport Plan will significantly contribute to addressing the key strategic issues that can take South African sport to the next level. Worldwide sport strategies are focused on increasing levels of participation in sport and recreation, as well as achieving success in high-profile sports. The benefits of this are reflected in a document entitled a Case for Sport, published by our Department in December 2009 (will be updated). The National Sport Plan will focus on two internationally recognised pillars for any successful sport system as well as the enablers required.
