The implications of the economy that was shut down overnight on 26 March as a result of the national lockdown are discussed and how renewed traction might be gained in terms of political will and government priorities. Perspectives are provided on a rapidly worsening fiscal condition and the risks for South Africa from a socio political and sovereign independence perspective explored. The panel also considers the impact of the COVID pandemic on the local business landscape and what will be required to survive during and post the pandemic.
