The Western Cape‘s results in last financial year reconfirmed its position as South Africa’s best-run administration, finance MEC Alan Winde said on Tuesday.

“But, Speaker, our vision for this province does not stop there: we have set ourselves the target of becoming the best run regional government in the world.”

Winde was making the provincial treasury 2012/13 budget vote speech in Cape Town.

“One of the most critical factors upon which our success will be judged is our ability to eradicate corruption. We have already made significant progress toward this goal.”

In 2010/11, for the second consecutive year, every department of the Western Cape government achieved an unqualified audit from the Auditor-General.

The province also spent more of its total budget than any other province in South Africa, just over 99 percent, he said.
