A plea to the private sector, but was Ramaphosa’s Sona enough?​

The economic implications of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s sixth state of the nation address (Sona) is the focus in this edition of Business Day Spotlight.
Our host Mudiwa Gavaza is joined by Yolandi Esterhuizen, a registered tax practitioner and director for product compliance in Africa and the Middle East at accounting firm Sage, and Louw Nel, a senior political analyst at Oxford Economics Africa.
Topics of discussion include: highlights from the Sona; how government could fund its activities, given the economic challenges; where SA is likely to see increases, decreases and reallocations in the upcoming budget; tax considerations for businesses; the balance of politics and economics Ramaphosa has to navigate, and; an outlook for the year ahead. ​
