JOHANNESBURG - The leader of the business constituency in the social dialogue forum, the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac), has called for a review of the organisation's mandate and relevance and says the lack of trust between partners must be urgently addressed.

Nedlac is hosting its 19th summit in Johannesburg today where issues such as a national minimum wage and the impact of the organisation are being discussed.

The summit has also been addressed by senior government and union leaders including Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa.

President of Business Unity South Africa Jabu Mabuza says Nedlac needs to reflect on its role in society and how it will impact the future.

"We propose a high level stakeholder engagement to look at its mandate, its structure and its reporting lines. This means that the relevance and effectiveness of Nedlac should be reviewed and understood."
