Johannesburg - The 2013 Budget unveiled by Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan on Wednesday underscored government's priority of job creation, said Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba.
"The Budget underscores the priority of this administration, its job creation, particularly through infrastructure development," he said.
South Africa had to be turned into a "construction site" to do this, and progress was already being made in this regard.
Gigaba said corruption needed to be rooted out to ensure all public money could be used to benefit the country.
