Government encourages all citizens to tune into their respective community radio stations to listen to the Medium Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS) being delivered in Parliament. The MTBPS will also be broadcast live over a number of other mediums including SABC Channel 404, SABC 2, ANN7, eNCA, RSGFM, SAFM, IkwekweziFM, PowerFM and Radio702.

The Minister of Finance, Mr Pravin Gordhan will table the MTBPS on Wednesday 26 October 2016 at 14h00.

The Government Communications and Information System (GCIS) will facilitate a link up to community radio stations across the country so that members of the public can be part of the process.

The public is encouraged to share their views and engage in a meaningful dialogue through twitter (#MTBPS2016).

GCIS Acting DG, Donald Liphoko, said, “The MTBPS is an important part of South Africa’s open and accountable budget process. The MTBS also sets out the fiscal policy objectives and spending priorities over the three-year expenditure period. Therefore, it is important the public engage with this process.”
