Recording of Rebuild SA Economies Webinar
28 October 2021
Gauteng City-Region Observatory (GCRO) and Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) is hosting a series of seminars under the theme ‘Rebuild’. This comes in the wake of the recent turmoil in KZN and Gauteng; the devastating impact of Covid 19 on lives, livelihoods and our democracy generally; the low economic growth SA was experiencing before the pandemic, and which worsened in 2020; and the challenges the state has been facing generally post the period of state capture.
Rebuilding Economies reflected critically on the country’s Economic Recovery and Reconstruction Plan (ERRP), which was launched a year ago in parliament. What progress has been made to date, what are the impacts of the July 2021 unrest, and if we need a radically different approach to achieving any reasonable economic growth?
