National Planning- citizen participation in Economic Decision-Making
A clearly defined process of National Planning is required to ensure that the nation’s economy is managed in a manner to allow for maximum benefit to be derived for all citizens. This process of national planning will be broad-based and participatory allowing for the involvement of all citizens in policy making and the management of our patrimony.
As established in the section on Governance, citizen participation is essential for the MSJ. This is especially important in the context of the national economy because each citizen is an economic actor in their own right, and therefore must have an opportunity to participate in decision making process around issues related to the economy.
