CDE’s Ann Bernstein spoke to Michael Avery of Business Day TV to discuss the costs of Government’s localisation policy. She argued, “Yes, we have to push up manufacturing dramatically, but I don’t think we should do that by protecting local industries in general. We have to think at the impact of that on other firms outside of manufacturing.”

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