Key Points:

  • Land reform and rural development require a bold new approach to ensure that justice is done, that land reform beneficiaries are made permanently better off, and that South African agriculture transforms and continues to attract investment, generates export earnings and provides a growing number of good jobs.
  • The issue of land reform is more complex and challenging than the debate about Section 25 of the Constitution.
  • The state alone does not have the capacity or knowhow to help SA change gear and put the land reform issue on a positive trajectory.
  • Land reform in SA will not be “solved” without private sector co-leadership, active involvement, knowhow and support.
