A five year review: Presidency achievements

From the outset, this administration has worked to address the immediate challenges facing South Africans and put in place the foundations for sustainable, inclusive growth and job creation into the future.

It has taken far-reaching actions to rebuild the economy, firstly in the wake of state capture and more than a decade of poor economic performance, secondly from a devastating global pandemic, and thirdly from a debilitating electricity crisis.

There has been significant progress on measures to grow the economy, create jobs, reduce poverty, tackle corruption and fight crime. Some of these measures have already had an impact on people’s lives, while the benefits of others will take a longer time to be felt.

We have come a long way in the last five years. We have built on the achievements of the last 25 years and we have taken decisive steps to deal with difficult challenges.

But our journey is not yet complete. There is still much work to be done to rebuild our economy, reduce poverty and ensure that all South Africans experience an ever improving quality of life.

This report provides an overview of the progress that has been made over the last five years.
