Operation Vulindlela is an initiative driven by the Presidency, supported by National Treasury. It is aimed at accelerating the implementation of prioritised economic structural reforms.
In his address to a joint sitting of Parliament on 15 October 2020, President Ramaphosa announced that “to fast-track the delivery of economic reforms, Operation Vulindlela will be implemented as a joint initiative of The Presidency and National Treasury.”
The implementation of structural reforms is crucial to sustain our economic recovery and to address the underlying causes of low economic growth and high unemployment. Many of these reforms have been delayed for a number of reasons, but their urgency is increased by the need to support a swift economic recovery.
