“Women in SA need to be given the opportunity to participate meaningfully, including in the construction industry,” said Department of Public Works and Infrastructure Minister Patricia de Lille.

Failure by construction industry players to comply with Covid-19 hygiene regulations and protocols could lead to site shutdowns which the industry can ill afford, says Databuild CEO Morag Evans, given that it was already in a severe slump prior to the outbreak of the pandemic.

The South African Gross Domestic Product (GDP) decreased by 2.0% in the first quarter of 2020, Statistics SA has revealed.
