CDE’s Ann Bernstein spoke to Khaya Sithole of Power FM’s Power Business to unpack Government’s commitment and approach to localisation. She said, “Localisation seems like an attractive idea but actually there is no free lunch and there are enormous costs to protectionism which is essentially what this is.”

This media interview was based on CDE’s latest publication titled: “The Siren Song of Localisation: Why localisation policy will not lead to industrialisation.”
