Historical evidence shows that in all successful economies, the state has always played an important role in facilitating structural change and helping the private sector sustain it over time.
Conversely, almost every government in the developing world has attempted, at some point, to play that facilitating role, but most have failed.
What role should the state play in promoting economic growth? How should governments go about identifying those industries with latent competitive advantage in order to facilitate industrial upgrading and economic diversification?
Wits Business School is pleased to invite you to a lecture by Dr Célestin Monga, Vice President for Economic Governance and Knowledge Management at the African Development Bank.
Dr Monga previously served as Managing Director at the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation and Senior Adviser/Director for Structural Transformation at the World Bank.
Booking is essential.
We look forward to hosting you!
