Policy documents
The South African government recognises that the social economy has the potential to stimulate economic activity while fostering greater social cohesion, inclusion and solidarity. A case may be made for an appropriate set of policy support. The Draft Green Paper is a consultation document that sets out preliminary thinking and proposals of a policy position, with specific recommendations, for consultation with a range of interested parties. After the initial consultation, it will be considered within Government and. if approved, released as a Green Paper. Formal consultation will then be conducted and, on conclusion of the process, Government will consider the matter further and any approved policy will be published in the form of a White Paper, either for consultation or for implementation.
