Energy and Infrastructure, the backbones of a healthy economy

Energy supply and sound infrastructure are fundamental to achieving economic growth. The interconnectedness and interdependencies between the two are irrefutable, with the country now experiencing the knock-on effects of failing and poorly maintained infrastructure. South Africa is not only in the midst of an energy crisis but also feeling the impact of compromised water supply, logistics, supply chain, pipelines, and technology.  

What is the short and long-term trajectory?; is the government committed to change?; and if not, how do we build resilience into these business risks?
