South Africa country brief: A socio-economic and political prognosis
Welcome to a lunchtime seminar on the economic, social and political developments in South Africa. Thirty years have passed since apartheid was abolished and the transition to democracy took place. The ANC still holds government power, albeit with less voter support than before. South Africa has become a global player. At the same time, the country has major socio-economic challenges. Increased prices and costs for food, fuel and electricity are hitting many in South Africa hard. Where is the country heading?
We offer a simpler lunch sandwich.
The seminar is conducted in English.
