Submit budget tips for Mboweni online
Ahead of the much-anticipated annual National Budget Speech, finance minister Tito Mboweni has called on South Africans to have their say.
In a statement, National Treasury says contributions can be submitted via its Web site, as well as through Twitter @TreasuryRSA, with the hashtags #TipsForMinFin and #Budget2020.
This isn’t the first time Treasury has called on the public to forward comments and suggestions for the national budget, with citizens getting a chance to share their views about economic conditions and other issues they would like government to highlight.
Treasury says the minister would like public views on what government can do to achieve faster and more equitable economic growth, among other issues.
“As usual, the budget allocation always aims to strike a balance amongst competing national spending priorities. It is in this context that minister Mboweni invites South Africans to share their views about economic conditions and other issues they would like government to highlight in the budget on 26 February 2020,” reads the statement.
“The minister looks forward to your contribution,” it states.
Mboweni will deliver the budget to Parliament on Wednesday, 26 February.
