• Conflict over water, coal

    SA's leaders have upped their support of the water-intensive coal industry, says Keith Schneider.

  • Cost of doing business

    The world can't afford the $4.7trn a year in environmental costs of business, says Mandi Smallhorne.

  • Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

Busa optimistic about Manaung decisions

Dec 21 2012 15:00
Sapa
Johannesburg - Business Unity South Africa on Friday welcomed policy decisions taken at the ANC's Mangaung conference as positive for the economy and the country as a whole.

"Busa... found the overall message from the conference as positive and confidence-building for the country in general," it said in a statement.

"Additionally, key economic decisions which were adopted will now hopefully boost investor confidence and spur economic growth."

The business umbrella body singled out the ruling party's decisions to reject nationalisation and its endorsement of the National Development Plan.

However, it said, for the plan to have a significant impact, true collaboration between government, business and labour was necessary.

It said business remained committed to working with government to address the challenges of unemployment, education and corruption.
