GETTING THE NATION ON THE MOVE IN THE RIGHT WAY IS KEY TO ECONOMIC GROWTH

Seamless transport is also about equity by providing our com-munities better access to job opportunities through high-quality multi-modal connections and door-to-door services. Transport is the engine of economic growth. For transport to promote a long term sustainable growth agenda, we need transport infrastructure.

Transport interconnectivity is key to a thriving economy and thereby improving the lives of our people.

Our ambition at BevSA is to support economic growth, and together, set out a shared vision for South Africa as a place which benefits all from a planning system that protects our unique environment. We support a strategic focus to improv-ing transport and connectivity links, and ensuring sustainable economic development.

Life without infrastructure, particularly roads; power lines; water and sewage systems; bridges; ports and airports; pub-lic buildings like schools, hospitals and housing; communi-cation towers; railway systems and many others that enable communities to achieve their goals, would be difficult.

    In the ten months since the Health Promotions Levy (HPL) was introduced, it has put pressure on the local non-alcoholic industry in already difficult operating conditions, as well as raising prices for hard-pressed consumers. The net impact of the levy has been compounded by subdued economic growth in the country and higher input costs of raw materials and ingredients, in particular, sugar. Consequently, this is limited the opportunity for growth and job creation in the sector and has resulted in downward pressure on the full value chain.
