SARChI chair of Tax Policy and Governance


Prof. Riel Franzsen

Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences


The research activities of the Chair are aligned with South African Government’s Department of Science and Technology Research strategies.  More specifically, National Treasury’s fiscal policy seeks to support structural reforms of the South African economy consistent with long-run growth, employment creation and an equitable distribution of income. It aims to promote investment and export expansion while enabling government to finance public services, redistribution and development in an affordable and sustainable budget framework. The chair is aligned with these objectives.
