In her annual State of the Province Address, tabled in the Western Cape Provincial Parliament on 20 February, Premier Helen Zille elaborated on the Western Cape Government's vision for improving the province over the next five years.
 
This vision is contained in the Western Cape Government’s Provincial Strategic Plan (PSP), which comprises the five Provincial Strategic Goals (PSG). The PSGs are an outline of how we aim to improve the lives of citizens over the next few years.
 
What are the PSGs?

The PSGs are five strategic goals identified by the Western Cape Government that will contribute to improving our province over the next five years. They are:

  1. Create opportunities for growth and jobs
    We are committed to creating an enabling environment to attract investment, grow the economy and create jobs by supporting high growth economic sectors.
     
  2. Improve education outcomes and opportunities for youth development
    We’re committed to expanding quality education across the province and providing opportunities for youth to realise their full potential.
     
  3. Increase wellness and safety, and tackle social ills
    We’re committed to addressing health, safety and social ills by supporting healthy communities, a healthy workforce, and healthy families, youth and children.
     
  4. Enable a resilient, sustainable, quality and inclusive living environment 
    We’re committed to improving urban and rural areas through enhanced management of land, an enhanced climate change plan, and better living conditions for all.
     
  5. Embed good governance and integrated service delivery through partnerships and spatial alignment 
    We’re committed to delivering good governance and an inclusive society that increases access to information, in partnership with active citizens, business and institutions.
What do they mean for me?

These goals will, over the next five years, help realise our vision of an open opportunity society for all citizens.
