Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma met with more than 100 in­flu­en­tial peo­ple on Tues­day in Cape Town.

The meet­ing was a fol­low-up on a meet­ing Fi­nance Min­is­ter Pravin Gord­han had with CEOs in Jo­han­nes­burg at the end of Jan­uary.

The meet­ings were held due to con­cerns about SA be­ing down­graded to ‘junk’ and to im­prove prospects at a time when the econ­omy is only fore­cast to grow by less than 1%, but the pres­i­dency por­trayed the meet­ing as a fol­low-up on the World Eco­nomic Fo­rum in Davos.

Busi­ness’ key is­sue was that the Na­tional De­vel­op­ment Plan (NDP) is not be­ing im­ple­mented, among many rea­sons growth is stag­nat­ing
