CDE Covid19 series publication

  • Unlocking the economy in the best way possible was the theme of a CDE webinar held on 08 May 2020.
  • In other countries the areas where the virus has spread the most has been within homes and on public transport. Workplaces can more easily introduce measures to avoid spreading the virus, unless they are working directly with the public, according to TIPS economist Neva Makgetla.
  • Government and business must engage each other constructively in the interests of creating more open, competitive business environments in which regulatory constraints are minimised.
  • A more collaborative approach between established business leaders and governments, at national, provincial, and metro levels, will allow South Africa to move through the lockdown levels as fast as is possible.
