ALI is excited to announce that former Minister of Finance, Trevor Manuel, will be engaging with ALI Fellows on the unfinished work for building South Africa and what still needs to be done.
While South Africa’s economy is expected to grow marginally over the next several years, to strengthen in the longer term it will need to improve in several key areas including education and energy costs. Manuel, who is is now one of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s four investment envoys, is sure to touch on this and other critical areas of growth.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to engage with Manuel, whose 13-year tenure as finance minister was able to regularly pull rabbits out of hats. We hope you will join us.
Trevor Manuel served as a cabinet minister and member of parliament for two decades, his role as finance minister continued for 13 years which is one of the world’s longest standing occupants of this position. During his tenure, he accomplished many firsts for South Africa, including the Financial Sector Charter and several other measures in support of SMEs. He continues to work as the Chairperson of Old Mutual Group Holdings, senior advisor at Rothschild and serves on the Advisory Board of the Centre for African Cities at UCT.
