The education sector was allocated $2.69bn in the 2013 federal budget, making it the highest recipient of government spending. A large youth population –estimated at 75m people – points to rapidly expanding demand for education and training of all types for years to come. Boosting private sector activity, particularly at the primary level, continues to be a fundamental objective of the government’s long-term plans for the sector. Other key focus areas include information and communications technology and the TVET segment, both of which will likely benefit from more private sector investment in the coming years.
