Western Cape Budget 2019/20

5 March 2019

The 2019 Budget is focused on “Consolidation for Maximum Citizen Impact”. This Budget provides opportunities for the youth; supports the creation of a safe and secure Province for the citizen; provides an enabling environment for job creation and skills development; builds and maintains economic and social infrastructure; and applies good governance standards to maximise service delivery and citizen impact.

Slow economic growth places pressure on an already constrained fiscal environment. The prolonged effects of the drought continues to impact on the Province, resulting in lower than anticipated economic growth. Guided by the Western Cape Fiscal Strategy and budget and policy principles, the 2019 Budget draws on the collective insight of the Western Cape Government in responding to the identified risks and giving effect to the strategic policy priorities as set out the 2014 - 2019 Provincial Strategic Plan.

The 2019 Budget has been crafted in consultation with key policy decision-makers and stakeholders, and presents a credible, sustainable and responsive allocation of resources in support of improved service delivery and maximum impact.

In aggregate, the 2019 Provincial Budget provides for total expenditure amounting to R67.148 billion in 2019/20, R70.368 billion in 2020/21, and R74.611 billion in 2021/22.
