National Budget Speech 2016

I have the honour to present the 2016 Budget of President Zuma’s second administration. We do so in a spirit of frankness, both about our challenges and the opportunity to turn our economy’s direction towards hope, confidence and a better future for all. Low growth, high unemployment, extreme inequality and hurtful fractures in our society – these are unacceptable to all of us. I have a simple message. We are strong enough, resilient enough and creative enough to manage and overcome our economic challenges. 2016 Budget Speech
