Event date: 16 August 2018
Spring was definitely in the air and a bumper crowd came out to our Members’ August Business Briefing with Frans Cronje, Chief Executive of the South African Institute of Race Relations and Moeletsi Mbeki, Deputy Chairman of the South African Institute of International Affairs this past Thursday evening. They gave their views on the very topical issue of ‘South Africa in the era of Expropriation Without Compensation’, and it was clear from our audience that there are many uncertainties and questions around this. We were back at the Inanda Club and Chamber member Aggreko kindly sponsored our evening.
Both Frans and Moeletsi had some facinating statistics to share which provided insight into how and why South Africa got to this point. In some cases, things are not as bad as they seem and in other cases, they are certainly worrying.
Expropriation without Compensation remains a much debated issue, which will continue to be closely watched by business and SA society.
