2) IN­FRA­STRUC­TURE PRO­DUC­TIV­ITY R260BN 660 000

Finweek English Edition - - COVER -

While SA’s in­vest­ment in in­fra­struc­ture as a per­cent­age of GDP, at 4.9%, is among the high­est in the world, there are still ma­jor gaps in elec­tric­ity sup­ply and ac­cess to clean wa­ter and san­i­ta­tion, ac­cord­ing to McKin­sey. It has ear­marked R2.2tr to be in­vested in in­fra­struc­ture over the next decade. The im­pact of smarter in­fra­struc­ture de­liv­ery in SA would be “tremen­dous”, it said, sav­ing the coun­try up to R1.4tr over the next decade. A more ef­fec­tive ap­proach to do­mes­tic in­fra­struc­ture de­liv­ery would also build the ca­pa­bil­i­ties needed to sup­port ex­panded ex­ports of con­struc­tion ser­vices to the rest of Africa.
