Speaking with SABC Full View’s Chriselda Lewis ahead of the President’s presentation of South Africa’s economic recovery plan, Ann Bernstein said, “The key priorities are a real sense of urgency about the energy situation and getting South Africa growing much faster in the right direction. We need to recognise how weak and corrupt the State is and we have to free up private actors, NGO’s and civil society to use their capacity to help South Africa in many different directions.”
