Video: The 2017 Budget Speech explained

Core theme: Economic growth that must benefit everyone

Van Niekerk says if the economy grows everyone must benefit, not just an elite few – 10 percent of the people earn 95 percent of the wealth. That is not sustainable, this inequality needs to narrow significantly. This is one of the keys to a prosperous South Africa.

He says his main concern is state debt, but everything is a function of the health of the economy. “If the economy grows the GDP will grow.”
