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