On 22 September, government, the private sector and industry experts, will come together to discuss the best way forward to achieve the land reform target set by the National Development Plan.

In addition, we will engage on the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders, analyse the challenges holding land reform back and discuss how government can best support these projects”.
