Event Details

State of The Nation


The reluctant emergence of Cyril Ramaphosa as a candidate for the leadership of the ANC, has been met with a lot of enthusiasm by South African business, made weary by the leadership of President Jacob Zuma and his discredited cabinet. However, Cyril Ramaphosa has already used the populist phrase radical economic transformation, so don't expect this debate to disappear anytime soon. 

So what does radical economic transformation really mean to you? 

The EFF seems to think that radical economic transformation is about the state taking control of "the means of production". The new Finance Minister's adviser seems to think that it means a nationalisation of everything and the Democratic Alliance seems to think that it means a lighter, friendlier version of BEE. 

Find out what the experts think of radical economic transformation when Justice Malala and Dr Martyn Davies speak at The State of the Nation breakfast. Award winning financial journalist, Bruce Whitfield will manage this important event and ensure that all of the hard-hitting questions are asked and answered.
