The plan proposes reviewing regulations on everything from fuel to banking and suggests ways to get more tourists and immigrants into the country, as South Africa battles with a contracting economy.

“First and foremost we all agree there is a crisis...so we need an economic story. What the minister has then said, is that this is our view of the economic story. But before we can conclude, can South Africans us what are your views on the document?, “ said Godongwana.
