This paper is one of series of SBP’s Alert issue papers to promote better regulatory governance in South Africa. The National Development Plan proposes many measures to accelerate economic growth and deal with the country’s rising social problems. The majority of these are based on the assumption of a reasonably healthy economy.

The paper reviews South Africa’s need for an economic and regulatory ecosystem that is designed to support market-driven inclusive growth, provide quality jobs, rapid skills development, innovation, increased productive output and better means to compete in a global economy.
