Johannesburg - South Africa's government will consider “additional measures” if its current expenditure limit proves insufficient to meet its fiscal objectives, Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene said on Monday.

“The expenditure ceiling identified in the last budget remains in place and if this proves insufficient, additional measures will be considered to meet our fiscal objectives,” Nene said in a speech to financial professionals. - Reuters
