This years theme: Unmasking the plan to return to normality?

South Africa’s 2021/22 budget speech, will be one of the most important indicators of how the country will weather its current set of extraordinary challenges. 
With the time for promises over and the country poised on a cliff of deeper economic recession, we look to National Treasury to provide a plan to return to a semblance of normality and address the urgent needs of a shaken nation.
