2017/18 Mid-Term Budget Policy Statement
From the Desk of Nazrien Kader | Wednesday, 25 October 2017
All eyes are firmly fixed on South Africa as Honourable Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba prepares to deliver his first 2017/18 Mid-Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS) on Wednesday, 25 October 2017.
This year, allegations of ‘state capture’ and corruption occupy the world stage, while the South African government remains pre-occupied with bailouts for state-owned entities – even while economists estimate that revenue collections will fall short of budgets continuing the steady downward trajectory (from an estimated shortfall of R30 billion earlier in the fiscal year to between R50 billion to R65 billion more recently). For these reasons, amongst others, this year’s MTBPS is expected to come under far greater scrutiny than usual.
