On 10 July 2020, two economic plans were released on the same day.

The first was the ANC’s paper called Reconstruction, Growth and Transformation: Building a New, Inclusive Economy. The second was the B4SA document called Post Covid-19: A New Inclusive Economic Future for South Africa - Delivering an Accelerated Economic Recovery Strategy.

None of these documents contained anything new as both highlight the need to achieve inclusive growth but differ on how we should achieve this.
