Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa hosts meeting of The IMC on Immigration Regulations

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa chaired a meeting of the Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) on Immigration Regulations at Tuynhuys in Cape Town on Thursday 20 August 2015.

The IMC meeting was established by President Jacob Zuma to look into the unintended consequences of the new immigration regulations on various sectors, including tourism and investment. As President Jacob Zuma announced, members of the IMC are Ministers of Tourism, Home Affairs, Trade and Industry, Social Development, Small Business Development and the security cluster.

Following presentations made to the meeting today, the IMC decided to establish a task team led by Director-General in the Presidency Dr. Cassius Lubisi to consolidate and synthesise all proposals and to provide a composite set of recommendations to be tabled at the next IMC meeting in a fortnight.
