SOUTH AFRICA’S FINANCIAL AND FISCAL COMMISSION GETS NEW CEO

PRETORIA-- The Financial and Fiscal Commission (FFC), the South African government's principal adviser on matters related to inter-governmental fiscal relations between the national government and the provincial governments, has confirmed the appointment of Dr. Kay Brown as its Chief Executive Officer, effective from April 1, 2018.

Dr Brown previously held a position as a Chief Director at the National Treasury. In recommending her appointment, the Commissioners at the FFC noted her wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise in the comprehensive economic and fiscal governance, public policy and financial planning and systems arenas within the public sector.

"The appointment will reset the FFC as the economic and fiscal policy and governance knowledge-based public institution of choice for the South African State and society," said the Chairperson of the Commission, Professor Daniel Plaaitjies.

The commissioners added that they are looking forward to Dr. Brown joining the FFC and wish her well with her new leadership and professional responsibilities.

"We have no doubt that the newly appointed CEO will bring professional integrity into the macro-economic, social, fiscal policy advice to all sectors of government and society," Plaatjies added.
