The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection, in partnership with the South African Reserve Bank, hosted Professor Gunter Pauli at a one-day workshop on Growth, Job Creation and Financial Stability.

Prof Gunter Pauli is a world-renowned innovator whose entrepreneurial activities span business, culture, science, politics and the environment. He specialises in identifying new sectors of the economy at the macro level, designing new competitive strategies for corporations at the micro level, and building social capital for communities at the local level.

The discussion was based on actual cases that have been implemented in different parts of the world that can offer South Africa exciting options for inclusive and sustainable growth. The workshop considered ways to expand competitive opportunities in the real economy, including mining, manufacturing and agriculture.

Other speakers included Reserve Bank Governor, Gill Marcus and MISTRA Executive Director, Joel Netshitenzhe.
