WATCH: What is SA’s economic recovery plan?

CAPE TOWN –Ahead of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s special address to Parliament on Thursday, experts are urging for an intervention in order to turn around the economy.

The Covid-19 pandemic has left a trail of unemployment and South Africans are looking for inclusive growth as the country looks to recover.


“Quite a lot of work has been undertaken by the President with social partners and economic experts,” said Kenneth Creamer, WITS School of Economic and Business Science.

“We definitely do need economic recovery, whether we need a plan, that will depend if that plan is effective.

“I don’t think we should be expecting a perfect plan or a silver bullet, but what we do need is some intervention that is capable of turning around our economy,” he said.

Creamer added that there are job creation opportunities in the solar and wind farm sectors, and that fast reliable internet access for businesses in the Township is crucial.
