The FIA is very proud to share this pledge from business leaders in South Africa. The companies represented operate across all sectors of the South African economy, with the values of the listed entities exceeding R11 trillion, employing more than 1.2 million people.
Cas Coovadia, BUSA CEO, expressed the importance of the collaboration and said: “The backdrop against which this pledge has been made is clear. South Africa currently faces many obstacles that have hindered our path to prosperity and perpetuated a narrative of decline and hopelessness. Business has consistently said that long-term meaningful investment is a precursor to sustainable, inclusive growth which in turn is fundamental to addressing socioeconomic improvement”.
In partnership with government, these CEOs will be addressing key fundamentals which impact on economic growth – this includes Energy, Transport and Logistics and Crime and Corruption.
As members of Business Unity South Africa, we trust this pledge will leave you feeling hopeful that together we can make a difference in our beautiful country.
