SACCI President Adv. Mtho Xulu on SABC News calling for the expansion and diversification of critical sectors of the economy to create jobs.
For the economy to bounce back from the COVID-19 shock, South Africa should deepen its manufacturing capacity to ensure greater economic independence.
“For the new economy to be a reality, we expect Government, working with all social partners to:
- Fast track an agile PPP framework for infrastructure Development;
- Create a more competitive investment environment to incentivise the private sector;
- Provide greater support for SMEs through market democratization; and
- Improve state capacity to serve as an enabler for the business community, both at sector level and national economy level.”
