The Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) Bi-annual Economic and Capacity Survey for the period July to December 2015, just released indicates that times are tough and getting tougher with industry confidence the lowest in 16 years. The report indicates that the consulting engineering industry will have to adapt to a low growth environment as the outlook for infrastructure spending is hampered by poor economic growth, lower than expected revenue by government, international economic instability and price volatility, and low private sector confidence.

Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) supports the clarion call to address institutional and regulatory barriers to business investment and growth, announced Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan during the Budget Speech.
"It means we must give greater impetus to sectors and industries where we have competitive advantages. And it means being bold where there is need for structural change, innovation and doing things differently. We need agility and urgency in implementation," stated Gordhan.
Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) believes that the recent decision by the Competitions Commission to reject the application for exemption of Identification of Engineering Work amendments to the Engineering Professions Act (EPA) (46 of 2000) is in part short sighted and with insufficient insight into the risks to public health and safety of the beloved citizenry of this Country.
