Important opinion piece by South African Competition Commissioner

south_africa

The South African Competition Commissioner, Tembinkosi Bonakele, has authored a very important opinion piece in the country’s leading business news publication (http://www.bdlive.co.za/opinion/2015/10/12/sa-needs-to-empower-economic-and-policy-experts).  In the piece, Bonakele laments a number of issues in particular the lack of policy direction within the state and the lack of recognition for experienced in house (state) experts.

Bonakele’s views are well made and echo some concerns raised previously by AAT.  It will be interesting to observe the developments in this regard, particularly, given the statements made by the ruling party apropos the role it envisages for the competition authorities.
