Government’s short term plan for economic recovery post-COVID is focused on infrastructure, energy, employment and industrialisation.

But where does this leave agriculture? And what are the prospects for governmental support for the Land Bank, a key institution in the sector and a critical contributor to food security? What are the implications of the Medium Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS) for agriculture, which will continue to play a pivotal role in poverty alleviation and economic growth in the next five years?

Wits Business School is pleased to invite you to an important conversation between Christo van der Rheede, executive director of Agri SA and Jannie Rossouw, economist and interim director of Wits Business School. Click here for speaker bios
