BLSA: Economic recovery plan must be developed by government & business community


The organisation’s Busi Mavuso said a plan was urgently needed

Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA) said it is doubting government has an economic recovery plan, following months under lockdown.

The country moved to level 2 lockdown at midnight, reopening almost all economic activities.

However, thousands of jobs had been thrown under water and economic growth will be dealt a further blow.

The organisation’s Busi Mavuso said a plan was urgently needed.

Business and labour have already put together plans, the ANC has already put together plans. They can come together and create a plan, to ensure we save our country and put it back on its growth path.”
