The Minister of Finance, Malusi Gigaba, has asked South Africas for input on his maiden Budget Speech.
The speech will be delivered amid subdued economic growth and a challenging fiscal situation, and the Minister encourages South Africans to share their views about the country’s economic conditions and other issues they would like government to highlight.
The budget will be tabled in parliament on 21 February 2018.
The Minister invites South Africans to share their views on:
* Funding of free education for students in tertiary institutions;
* How South Africa can achieve inclusive economic growth;
* How South Africa can use its resources to ensure efficiencies; and
* How the government, civil society, unions and business can work together for the purpose of achieving South Africa’s economic objectives.
