Last month South Africa’s ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC) released national policy documents ahead of its National Policy Conference to be held from 30 June-5 July 2017. What is most striking about its document on Economic Transformation is that it contains many of the solutions needed for getting South Africa out of junk status, which its long-term foreign currency was downgraded to by both Fitch and S&P and local by Fitch. Is anyone in governance taking notice and prepared to act or is there a complete disconnect between policy and governance?
