Operation Vulindlela is opening the trail to development

Dear Fellow South African,

The South African financial system, like some other financial system, can not perform, not to mention develop, with out environment friendly and aggressive community industries. These industries – which embody electrical energy, water, transport and telecommunications – are the arteries by means of which the oxygen of the financial system runs.

Structural issues in these areas have lengthy been cited as a few of the principal constraints on South Africa’s financial development. Inefficiency and the excessive value of community companies are an obstacle to doing enterprise within the nation.

A manufacturing unit can solely function successfully with a dependable and reasonably priced provide of electrical energy. A farm with irrigated farmlands can solely produce meals if its utility for a water use license is processed timeously. A mine can solely transport its minerals for export if the railways are functioning correctly. And a small enterprise can not thrive if it lacks entry to the web or if the price of knowledge is just too costly.

To deal with and overcome these challenges, we arrange Operation Vulindlela in October 2020 as an initiative of the Presidency and National Treasury to speed up structural reforms in these community industries. While the accountable authorities departments and entities drive these reforms, Operation Vulindlela displays and identifies challenges and blockages. Where wanted, it facilitates technical assist to departments.

Today, we’re releasing an replace report on the work of Operation Vulindlela for the primary quarter of 2022. The quarterly report outlines the progress made by Operation Vulindlela and the departments chargeable for these reforms.

Across authorities, our focus is on reforms which are basic and transformative; that reshape the way in which our financial system works.
