JOHANNESBURG - Business Unity SA (Busa) has noted the change in the leadership of the ANC after the party's 54th elective conference. 

Busa has affirmed that business is ready to work in partnership with the new leadership in the pursuit of creating a conducive environment for sustainable and inclusive economic growth. Busa said the new leadership would need to take decisive steps to rebuild business confidence, thereby clearing the way for investment in the economy, job creation and transformation. 

“South Africans are looking for clear signs of consistent, ethical and accountable leadership, and acting in the best interests of the country," said Tanya Cohen, Busa's chief executive. 

“We call on the newly elected leadership of the ANC to immediately occupy itself with a clear and practical programme of action that will address the country’s declining fiscal and macroeconomic position and to embrace the strengthening of the partnership between government, business and organised labour."
