Lunch with Cas Coovadia – Making Land, Rand and Sense of South Africa (KZN)
Wednesday, 12 September 2018 12:00 to 14:00
An invitation to an intimate reflection on recent developments in the country over lunch with Cas Coovadia (Chairman, The Banking Association of South Africa), Xolani Magojo (Chairperson, NBI KZN Regional Advisory Committee) and Joanne Yawitch (CEO: The National Business Initiative).
We invite you to join us to reflect on recent developments in the country and make sense of what these mean for business in the short to medium-term. The 1H2018 started off under a romantic haze of nostalgia following leadership change within the ruling party.
Be that as it may, challenges facing the country abound: inequality, unemployment and poverty levels remain stubbornly high. We are also not addressing, in a way that produces results, the low levels of investment and economic growth, which are critical to addressing inequality, poverty and unemployment. The fresh attack on emerging market currencies including the Rand, imminent legislative changes on land ownership and the approaching national elections continue to collectively nurture uncomfortable levels of market insecurity.
In spite of the outlook, the NBI stands firm in the belief that business has a strong and meaningful role to play in successfully steering and influencing the country through choppy waters. Join Cas, Xolani and Joanne and a select group of KwaZulu-Natal business people for an intimate and stimulating discussion on emergent political and economic trends, and what these mean for business in the region.
Please note that this is a by invitation only event.
