Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma called for greater cooperation between all social partners to spur economic growth and create jobs, as he delivered his state-of-the-nation address on Thursday.

A flu-ridden Zuma warned that South Africa was way off track to meet its job creation targets at the current rate of economic growth.

"In my last meeting with the business community, the sector indicated that for the economy to grow three-fold we must remove certain obstacles," he said.

"We need business, labour and other social partners in pursuit of the necessary solution."
