Got any pointers for Pravin?

Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan is inviting South Africans to send him their tips on what they would like to see in the next budget, the ministry of finance said today.

“South Africans are invited to send through their tips on what they would like to see in the country’s budget, and what they think government’s spending priorities should be,” the ministry said in a statement.

Gordhan will present the 2011 budget to Parliament on February 23, 2011.

“This campaign is run throughout the year and ensures active participation in government programmes, especially matters related to the economy.”

The campaign was launched in 2001 under previous finance minister Trevor Manuel.

Tips can be sent via the National Treasury website at; faxed to 012?315?5126; or posted to Private Bag X115, Pretoria 0001.

Gordhan also has a fan page on Facebook where tips can be posted.
