Johannesburg - South Africa's fiscus is likely to see an increase in spending, but is looking to focus the expenditure on investment, Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene said on Tuesday.

“We actually see a moderate increase in our expenditure, and what we are doing is looking at the composition of the expenditure, with a particular focus on investment rather than consumption,” Nene told analysts at a Thomson Reuters event in Johannesburg. - Reuters
