PRESS RELEASE: National Treasury to launch second phase of SA-TIED programme
Members of the media are cordially invited to the launch of Phase II of the SA-TIED programme, which will take the form of a panel discussion under the topic - the challenge of economic inclusion in South Africa and the need to implement structural reforms.
The Southern Africa – Towards Inclusive Economic Development (SA-TIED) programme supports policy-making for inclusive growth and economic transformation in the Southern Africa region. It’s a collaboration between the National Treasury of South Africa, the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER), and many other governmental and research organizations in South Africa, implemented with partial funding from the European Union. In this second phase, SA-TIED is proud to announce an additional partner in the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.
A key aspect of the programme is to encourage networking and discussion amongst those involved in policy processes across the participating organizations and civil society to bridge the gap between research and policy-making.
The panel discussion on the challenge of economic inclusion in South Africa and the need to implement structural reforms, will comprise leading policymakers and researchers.
Date: 5 May 2022
Time: 9:30 – 13:30
