The Master Builders Association (MBA) North has broadly welcomed President Ramaphosa’s vision of massive infrastructure spending as the “flywheel” of South Africa’s recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

The Master Builders Association (MBA) North is calling on government to assist the industry by proactively engaging with the industry to firm up the lockdown regulations as they pertain to the construction industry as timeously as possible.

Business rescue is intended to provide a way for companies in financial trouble to return to profitable trading, thus saving jobs, preserving wealth and giving creditors a better return.

The Master Builders Association (MBA) North says that the continuing trend of main contractors delaying payment of their sub-contractors – or defaulting altogether – is a symptom of the deteriorating health of the construction industry.
