Business Leadership SA says the budget speech is more critical than ever

# Business Leadership South Africa says the upcoming budget speech is more critical than ever to business sentiment. Finance minister, Enoch Godongwana, will deliver the budget speech on Wednesday. The business organisation’s CEO, Busisiwe Mavuso, says there has been a clear effort to rein in spending, but the challenge is that the economy has not cooperated. She says some of the key issues she will be watching out for in the budget include the financial predicament of Transnet and Eskom, infrastructure investment, and changes to tax rates.
