Massmart CEO Grant Pattison has expressed his disappointment about the postponement of the amalgamation hearing for the group and Walmart to 9 May. He said allegations that the two groups didn’t provide the requested information are untrue and misleading.
WHAT OTHERS SAID
THE STAR said SA’s Competition Tribunal’s postponement of the hearing is a complex issue, but it will test Government’s commitment to growth in the light of the need for overseas investment in SA. “May there be a solution good for all parties.” The SUNDAY TIMES said the late intervention was again at the expense of SA’s welfare. If SA wants to attract investment it must facilitate transactions, not hinder them.
