Plans are under way to turn around the local economy as well as the finances of the African National Congress (ANC). This is according to newly elected ANC Treasurer general Dr Gwen Ramokgopa.

Ramokgopa has been elected the first female treasurer-general since the unbanning of the ANC in 1990. She once served as the Gauteng Health MEC, first woman executive mayor of the City of Tshwane and Deputy Health Minister.

She held her first engagement with business at the Progressive Business Forum breakfast just after being elected in the new role.
