Growth and Development Reforms in South Africa

Growth and Development Reforms in South Africa

This is a two-year policy engagement focusing on the formulation and implementation of policies to boost inclusive growth in South Africa, with particular emphasis on reducing unemployment.

These policies take into account South Africa’s constrained macroeconomic circumstances as well as the need to expand participation in the formal economy of historically disadvantaged individuals.

The project takes the form of a collaboration between South Africa’s National Treasury and the Growth Lab and is administratively supported by the Centre for Development and Enterprise (CDE), one of South Africa’s leading think tanks.
