Projects in Progress 2020 (Second Edition) Projects in Progress 2020 (Second Edition)

Even before the Covid-19 pandemic kicked lumps out of the South African economy, the country was on the back foot when it came to fixed investment projects and its pipeline of new investments. Public-sector spending was waning, despite huge backlogs and community protests over the lack of services, while the private sector lacked the policy certainty and confidence needed to proceed with major projects. Now that the virus has further undermined the financial capacity of government and its poorly managed State-owned entities to stimulate the economy through large-scale infrastructure programmes, any infrastructure-led recovery will require new delivery, funding and business models. Only through extreme transparency will South Africa attract investors motivated by fair returns over the project life cycle, rather than predatory opportunists and rent seekers. Another critical component lies in having a ready-made pipeline of projects that are immediately bankable, rather than merely aspirational. That pipeline must include not only projects directed at meeting the country’s most pressing infrastructure needs but those that can also be immediately funded through sustainable fiscal transfers, user-pay tariffs or a combination of the two. South Africa, therefore, needs to adopt a far more innovative and collaborative approach to the conceptualisation, financing, implementation, operations and maintenance of public infrastructure if it is to have any hope of truly using such investments to stimulate a recovery from the economic devastation wrought by Covid-19. These difficulties are partially reflected in the second edition of the Projects in Progress supplement.

Projects in Progress 2020 (First Edition) Projects in Progress 2020 (First Edition) Has PDF
Published: 12 Jun 20
The economic damage that has followed in the wake of legitimate government efforts to stave off the Covid-19 storm is becoming clearer by the day, along with how incredibly challenging it is going to be to navigate our way out of it. Thousands of businesses are in grave peril and millions of jobs are at risk. Business confidence has fallen precipitously, and most major capital investments are either being delayed, deferred or cancelled as business leaders turn their attention from growth to survival. This publication showcases some of those large-scale mining, industrial and infrastructure projects initiated well ahead of the Covid-19 lockdown. What is immediately clear from the pages that follow is that the stock of productive and infrastructure projects was already insufficient to not only address prevailing backlogs, but also stimulate the investment-led growth required to help this country deal with its serious social problems. For that pipeline to be replenished in a way that is fully aligned with the needs of a post-pandemic world, more urgency is required to implement the much-needed structural reforms that would provide investors with the confidence they require to proceed with new fixed-investment projects.
