Beyond State Capture: Building an economy based on equality, accountability and sustainability

Description: In this South African Chamber webinar, we will explore how accountable government and ending a culture of state capture and corruption could set the country on a growth trajectory as foundation for a more just and equitable society and how the skills and experience of South Africans abroad could play a role.
