CDE convenes a series of global conversations over the next year on democracy, business, markets and development.

Paul Romer, New York University professor and former chief economist of the World Bank is our first speaker. He received the Nobel Prize for his work on the drivers of economic growth. In recent years he has focused on the challenge of jobs in developing countries.

Kgalema Motlanthe, former president of South Africa will give closing remarks. Laurie Dippenaar, CDE’s chairman will open the webinar.

For 25 years CDE has influenced policy in South Africa’s democracy. We have established ourselves as a unique, influential policy think tank and prominent public ‘voice’ promoting enterprise and development in South Africa and emerging markets. We have built a wide network throughout the country and with leading global experts and think tanks, especially in democratic developing countries.
