The Inclusive Society Institute (ISI) hosted a Financial Sector dialogue as part of its ongoing research aimed at developing an economic blueprint for growing the South African economy. The ISI will be hosting a series of dialogues with various sectors over the coming months.
Each dialogue will comprise two parts. Part 1 is aimed at getting a deeper understanding as to the sector’s take on what, in terms of the current global economic architecture, the country is not doing right and how to fix it, whilst part 2 will focus of generating new ideas capable of lifting the economy’s growth trajectory.
The dialogue was attended by representative drawn from the banking, insurance, accounting & advisory, and the financial analysis fraternity. It was also attended by Wolfgang Fengler, the lead economist for Southern Africa, from the World Bank, and Arthur Minsat, the head of the Africa and Middle East Unit of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
