As such, the CFCR welcomes the opportunity to make a concise submission to the Portfolio Committee on Public Works (the Committee) regarding the Promotion and Protection of Investment Bill [B18 ‐ 2015] (the Bill) in response to your call for submissions as published on www.parliament.gov.za. In this regard, please find attached our submission for the Committee’s attention and consideration.
It is not the purpose or intention of this submission to provide comprehensive legal analysis or technical assessment of the Bill, but rather to draw attention to key concerns in relation to the Bill – particularly in so far as it relates to the aforementioned constitutional values, rights and principles.
The CFCR will be available to elaborate on this submission by way of oral submissions, whether during public hearings, or at any other time as the Committee may deem appropriate.
We trust that our submission will be of assistance in guiding the Committee in its deliberations regarding the Bill.
