SACCI COPPER THEFT BAROMETER: February 2015 PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 02 April 2015 09:36

The Copper Theft Barometer level decreased to R12.7 million in February from R12.9 million in January 2015. The February figure is 1.55% lower than a month ago and 18.1% higher than a year ago. While the month on month reduction in the month is welcome, it is worrying that the year on year increase is still relatively high. The Copper Theft Volume Indicator increased to 192 metric tons in February 2015 from 184 metric tons in January 2015. The drop in value in February despite the increase in volume is most likely linked to the decrease in the average monthly spot price of copper.

In a statement issued 31 March 2015, the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) said:

 QUOTE:

Cosatu and its affiliates have always played a fundamental role in labour relations in South Africa.

The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) believes that the expulsion of Mr Zwelinzima Vavi from Cosatu poses a number of challenges for business, not least the determination of the structure that it should recognise as being representative of employees.

SACCI LAMENTS INCREASING PROTEST ACTION

In a statement issued today the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) said:
QUOTE:


The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) is gravely concerned at the increase in the number of protest actions that are taking place in the country. The current unrest in Thembelihle, Soweto, Tembisa and Johannesburg confirm the results of the Civic Protest Barometer, issued last month by the Multi-level Government Initiative at the Community Law Centre of the University of the Western Cape, as do the protests by UCT students calling for the removal of the statue of Cecil John Rhodes, and those in Jericho and Letlhabile near Brits in Northwest Province and Malamulele in Limpopo, to name but a few. It is particularly worrying that South Africa is being dubbed the “Protest Capital of the World”.

SACCI REACTION TO THE STATE OF THE NATION ADDRESS

In a statement issued today, the President of SACCI, Mr Vusi Khumalo said:

QUOTE:
The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) welcomes the positive tone of the State of the Nation Address delivered by President Zuma.
SACCI is pleased to note that the nine point plan to ignite growth and create jobs includes actions that it believes will provide the impetus that South Africa so badly needs.  The SME sector can play a pivotal role in achieving the successful implementation of the initiatives. SACCI appeals to government to engage stakeholders, specifically business, to assist in the execution of the programmes.
It is encouraging to note that resolving the energy crunch is regarded as the top priority. But it is regrettable that even the short term initiatives are unlikely to deliver early results. Without solutions to the electricity crisis, successful implementation of the other priorities will not be possible in the short to medium term.
