South Africa’s lockdown and the risk-adjusted approach to its easing, have been as strict as any in the world. On 8 May 2020, CDE hosted a webinar to discuss the pros and cons, costs and benefits of the approach, and whether there are other options to consider.

The conversation was led by CDE’s Ann Bernstein.

The speakers were:

  • Theuns De Wet, Macro Strategist, FirstRand Ltd
  • Michael Jordaan, CEO, Montegray Capital
  • Neva Makgetla, Senior Economist, Trade & Industrial Policy Strategies
  • Stephan Malherbe, CEO, Genesis Analytics
  • Ayanda Mngadi, Group Executive Corporate Affairs, Hulamin

A recording of the webinar and Neva Makgetla’s presentation slides are available below.
