Cyril Ramaphosa sets up policy war room
President Cyril Ramaphosa will reinstate a policy and research advisory unit in the presidency, which will give him a clear line of sight over the government, particularly the design and implementation of economic and investment policies.
The unit will also give the presidency oversight of strategic projects, such as the National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme. It is also expected that a new growth plan and a new industrial policy will emanate from work done within the presidency and that a senior minister with strong government and ANC standing will be appointed to work in the presidency, purely as adviser to Ramaphosa.
