Change the world


Nelson Mandela University’s Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences will host representatives from the National Treasury for the annual post-budget speech debate on Wednesday (11 March).

The debate is part of the national department’s outreach programme, which is hosted at higher education institutions around the country on a rotational basis, with Mandela University holding it in line with the institution’s engagement objectives.

“As Nelson Mandela University’s Faculty of Business and Economic Sciences, we are pleased to host this important engagement, which will go a long way in educating and keeping our students abreast with the fiscal developments in the country, and getting acquainted with the process of consolidating and tabling the national budget,” said the faculty’s Executive Dean, Prof Hendrik Lloyd.

The debate follows Finance Minister Tito Mboweni’s tabling of the budget in Parliament on Wednesday, 26 February. National Treasury, as the department responsible for coordinating the process of allocating funds to various government objectives and programmes, is embarking on a budget outreach programme to unpack the government’s spending plan for the coming financial year.

It will take place at the University’s Business School, at the Second Avenue Campus, and will be livestreamed to the George Campus.

Members of the public who are unable to attend the debate, but are keen to follow proceedings can also stream it here.
