MORE ABOUT THE MODERATOR AND SPEAKERS 

Trade & Industrial Policy Strategies (TIPS) will host its 2021 Annual Forum on Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 August on the theme of the Reconstruction and Recovery: Rethinking Inclusive Industrialisation in Response to COVID-19. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a slowdown in international trade, and disrupted global supply chains and the organisation of work. In addition, pre-existing inequalities and structural constraints on growth have been exacerbated. Economic policy interventions that have been implemented in response to the pandemic have highlighted pre-existing tensions between key economic players across the globe. This context brings new challenges, opportunities and imperatives for industrial policy, in South Africa, the region and internationally. The Forum seeks to provide a platform for key economic policy players to collectively reflect on the socio-economic challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, unpack the basic assumptions embedded within approaches to industrial policy within the South African and regional context, and explore opportunities and prospects for economic recovery and reconstruction.

It is being held in partnership with the South African Research Chair in Industrial Development (SARChI) at the University of Johannesburg, and in association with the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic).  

The Forum will be held online.
