AHI supports NDP

Finweek English Edition - - FEATURE -

As a mul­ti­sec­toral busi­ness or­gan­i­sa­tion con­sist­ing of 105 ru­ral and sub­ur­ban mul­ti­lin­gual, mul­ti­cul­tural cham­bers of com­merce and about 100 cor­po­rate SMEs, the AHI is uniquely po­si­tioned to con­trib­ute to the re­al­i­sa­tion of the NDP’s ob­jec­tives, es­pe­cially at grass­roots level.

Said Trevor Manuel, Min­is­ter in the Pres­i­dency re­spon­si­ble for the NDP, in his speech at the AHI’s na­tional congress in 2012: “All we need now is ini­tia­tive – peo­ple or or­gan­i­sa­tions pre­pared to step up and be ac­count­able for what they do. We ac­cept that this will en­tail a de­gree of ex­per­i­men­ta­tion. Ev­ery as­pect of the plan is pro­moted on a sim­i­lar ba­sis. That’s why the proac­tive align­ment by the AHI is so at­trac­tive to us.”

Since then, the AHI has struc­tured its strate­gic and op­er­a­tional plan in or­der to put this most im­por­tant cor­ner­stone of the NDP into prac­tice. The ob­ject is to bring about eco­nomic growth through eco­nomic or­gan­i­sa­tion at lo­cal level.
