A WORD FROM OUR PAST WINNERS

2019 Winner
Yashvir Algu
Alumni

I find that the Budget Speech Competition has great value for aspiring economic students. Not only are the topics economically relevant, but the Budget Speech Competition events in Cape Town gave students an opportunity to meet and talk to some of the most influential policy makers in South Africa.

1972 Winner
Deon Burger
Campus Convenor for UNISA
It was a great honour and brought back memories when in later years I could resume a role in this competition, that has evolved so much over the years, as the campus convenor for Unisa.
