October Bulletin 2020 Oct 31, 2020

The end of October 2020 saw the Hon. Minister of Finance, Mr Tito Mboweni finally giving the Mid-Term Budget Policy Speech (MTBPS) which had been earlier postponed. In the MTBPS, Minister Mboweni stressed that state-owned entities continue to present significant fiscal risks in the form of contingent liabilities and direct requests for state financial support. The COVID-19 virus was also identified as one pandemic that continues to be a major factor impacting economic and business activity in South Africa. It is therefore evident that we are far from being in an ideal economic position as a nation, and addressing these issues will require both decisive government action and the political will and determination to implement recommended turnaround strategies aimed at promoting economic growth and business activity.

September Bulletin 2020 Oct 06, 2020

South Africans were elated by President Cyril Ramaphosa’s address on 16 September 2020, announcing that our nation would effectively be shifting gears to Alert Level 1 at midnight on Sunday 20 September. This announcement, which had long been anticipated by business, gave rise to a new glimmer of hope as preparations to further open many other economic sectors which had been restricted began in earnest. It was indeed music to the ears of our fellow hospitality and tourism industry counterparts who have suffered immensely during the lockdown that began at the end of March 2020.
