Assessment and recommendations

Since the early 1990s, South Africa has gone through a democratic transition with the development of broad-based consultation in the policy formation process, a sound macroeconomic policy framework, and strong institutions to protect the rule of the law. Social progress has been achieved with redistributive grants and wide access to key public services, notably education, health, housing, water, sanitation and electricity. These services account for 60% of government spending (Statistics South Africa, 2014).
