SAVCA’s position on COVID-19 vaccination
As the industry body and public policy advocate for private equity and venture capital in Southern Africa, the Southern African Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (SAVCA) is in full support of and encourages COVID-19 vaccination to allow the economy to open up further and stimulate economic recovery. All South Africans must act in the best interest of the country and the health and safety of their fellow citizens.
The SAVCA 2021 Private Equity Industry Survey found that there was a significant decrease in funding from international markets in 2020, which is a drastic shift when compared to periods prior to the pandemic, when South Africa received substantial funding from the US and other African territories. SAVCA believes that widespread vaccination will also boost international investor confidence, which is vital for the economic recovery of South Africa.
