Where is South Africa’s political economy going in the future? Independent Political Analyst & Director of the Political Futures Consultancy Daniel Silke will challenge your conference with a future-oriented and broad-ranging presentation offering the latest analysis of major economic & political trends facing the country.
This may include (inter-alia) the state of the economy; social & demographic challenges; labour-relations; unemployment; prospects for foreign investment; infrastructure development; regional & foreign policy; the role and efficiency of the State; the Nationalisation debate versus the implementation of the National Development Plan; the quality of and threats to our democracy as well as the complexities of the political debate going forward.
In particular, this Keynote will address the question of how economic policy debates around competing visions for economic growth are likely to define and potentially divide the ANC in the years to come. On-going leadership tensions with the ANC will be a key area of focus as the ruling Alliance continues to be strained by ideological divisions over the future course of economic policy. Marrying the key economic debates of the modern South African era with Silke’s canny insights into the rough and tumble of the domestic political process makes this one topical presentation you will not want to miss!
This is one of the few South African keynotes to offer both an economic & political overview of the current and future prospects for the country and represents excellent value for any conference.
