Swaziland has outlined its vision for the future in Vision 2022, a blueprint for the country's concerted efforts to revamp and accelerate the development of human resources in the country.
Swaziland: achieving global standards in human capital development
Vision 2022 sits at the core of Swaziland's goal to create a sustainable economy and improve its world standing in human development. Swaziland's economy, traditionally reliant on agriculture and manufacturing, must embrace a new age of technological innovation and spur the growth of knowledge-based industries within the country and create new opportunities previously unavailable.
Among key strategies include the need to build the nation's capacity for innovation and competitive participation in the globalised economy. It is, therefore, imperative that the nation builds its human capital in a manner that will enable the nation to venture successfully into the production of goods and services. And at the same time address poverty issues by empowering its next generation to take advantage of opportunities now arising globally in the area of new technologies and creative content creation.
