GAUTENG PROVINCE’S ADJUSTMENT BUDGET IS A CONFIDENCE BOOSTER TO BOTH RESIDENTS AND BUSINESS
The Adjustment Budget and Medium Term Budget Policy Statement tabled by Finance MEC Comrade Barbara Creecy this morning has reaffirmed Gauteng as a province on the upward trajectory offering more than just hope and opportunity for its citizens.
The adjusted appropriation of R123.2 billion comes hot on the heels of the release of the Gauteng Quality of Life Survey (QoL) 2017/2018 results by the Gauteng City-Region Observatory (GCRO) on Tuesday which showed that life for the residents of Gauteng under the ANC government is getting better and better.
The African National Conference (ANC) Gauteng Province is pleased that R1.9 billion more has been injected to the Gauteng provincial government’s budget to expand on infrastructure roll-out which is critical to grow the economy of the province and to providing quality health care and education which are the back bone of a strong economy.
What is noteworthy in the budget presented today is the fact that the fiscal discipline exercised over the province’s finances has seen the Provincial Treasury, without any new money allocated from National Treasury, been able to fund the Adjustment Budget solely from revenue collection, raising over R6 billion.
This should give comfort to residents of Gauteng and the business and investor community at large that the public resources they have entrusted to the ANC Government in the province are in capable hands. A fact that has been further confirmed by the 100% unqualified audit outcome in the 2017/2018 financial year across all provincial government departments.
We believe that the Adjustment Budget will help boost efforts of the provincial government to contribute to the achievement of the National Economic Stimulus and Recovery Plan and to create a conducive environment for economic activity and job creation through partnerships between the public and private sectors.
