Lebogang Maile, MEC for Economic Development, says he is extremely disappointed about the country’s economy contracting by 1.2 percent.
This has now put South Africa on track for its first recession in seven years.
Against this backdrop, the Gauteng government is hosting a two-day Economic Indaba.
Maile says he already has a plan in place and has called on the public to see how the plan can be enhanced.
The plan is so that by the time we leave the indaba we have something solid.— Lebogang Maile, MEC for Economic Development
The MEC says they have tried to invite as many people as possible to see how to get out of the current tough economic times.
