Budget Speech 2019



In summary, Madam Speaker, let me outline the highlights of this Budget:

1. We are taking tough steps to fix the fiscal position and state-owned enterprises.
2. Our children are our future. Most of the spending goes to education, and we will strengthen early childhood development and support higher education for the most deserving.
3. On land, we have set aside money to help our people buy their own houses, support land reform, and transfer title deeds.
4. On electricity, we face tough choices on Eskom.
5. We are reprioritising resources towards the President’s infrastructure fund and away from the wage bill.


Madam Speaker, this is a Budget that plants a seed for renewal and growth.


It is all of our duty to tend the seed and see that it grows strong, tall and fruitful.


It is a Budget for the future.


For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Isaiah 55:12.


Thank you.
