This editorial is written by John Endres, COO of the South African Institute of Race Relations (“IRR”) and titled “Growth & Recovery: A strategy to #GetSAWorking”. It showcases that there are solutions that are available in directing South Africa on a path to economic recovery over the years 2021 – 2026.

It is important for all to appreciate the need for civil society organisations and the role that everyone can play in driving change through the vote but, as important, through Chambers such as SALCOC who can provide an effective lobby for member businessmen and a source of network connection with all stakeholders working for a prosperous South Africa for all who live, work and visit this beautiful country South Africa.

In this paper, the IRR makes some simple proposals that remove impediments to entrepreneurial initiative and individual autonomy, and which – if implemented will help our society as a whole in moving forward.
