As a I hand over reigns of the MBSA Presidency to my esteemed colleague and friend, Musa Shangase, I am pleased to look back at the journey we have traversed together in the last two years, fraught by its many challenges and successes. There is no doubt that these have been unprecedent times in the history of modern mankind. Equally so for our country and the building industry. However, I want to repeat the words I have once quoted of Hugh Howey who said “My only wish is that we leave room for hope. There is good and bad in all things. We find what we expect to find. We see what we expect to see. I have learned that if I tilt my head just right and squint, the world outside is beautiful. The future is bright. There are good things to come.” Indeed, good things are coming, and since the beginning on the year we have seen some improvements that point to a recovery of our industry.
From the industry point of view, we remain under pressure and its sad to see that construction companies, particularly small businesses continue to close due to lack of work. Despite all these challenges, I urge all our members to remain resolute and positive. We continue to do our best to protect the interest of the industry and we welcome all your feedback as our members. We recognize and have acknowledged that the construction industry in South Africa was in a general state of decline prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.
