Trade union federation Cosatu says it is disappointed by Finance Minister Tito Mboweni's Mid-Term-Budget Policy Statement, describing it as a missed opportunity for government.
Cosatu parliamentary coordinator Mathew Parks shares a number of points that the organisation believes government failed to mention.
There was very little new in the speech to say how we are going to grow the economy, how we are going to turn things around. There was almost no reference to the commitment made by government in the private sector in the presidential job summit to create jobs to save the economy.— Mathew Parks, Parliamentary coordinator - Cosatu
Government barely touched on the issues of corruption, concrete plans to turn state-owned enterprises around... we are quite worried and disappointed.— Mathew Parks, Parliamentary coordinator - Cosatu
