Time for economic savvy, says Busa


BUSINESS Unity SA (Busa) has noted the change in the leadership of the ANC after the party’s 54th elective conference. Busa has affirmed that business is ready to work in partnershi­p with the new leadership in the pursuit of creating a conducive environmen­t for sustainabl­e and inclusive economic growth. Busa said the new leadership would need to take decisive steps to rebuild business confidence, thereby clearing the way for investment in the economy, job creation and transforma­tion. “South Africans are looking for clear signs of consistent, ethical and accountabl­e leadership, and acting in the best interests of the country,” said Tanya Cohen, Busa’s chief executive. “We call on the newly elected leadership of the ANC to immediatel­y occupy itself with a clear and practical programme of action that will address the country’s declining fiscal and macroecono­mic position and to embrace the strengthen­ing of the partnershi­p between government, business and organised labour.” – Staff Reporter
