“The role of a state, or so they say, is to create a favourable environment for business. Law and order, stable currency, infrastructure, courts, and so on. But what if states do not foster a conducive business environment, or even undermines it? Is there a way to do something about it yourself? Is there a way to state-proof business?” asks Piet le Roux, CEO of AfriBusiness.

AfriBusiness will on 5 June host a conference called “Prospects for state-proofing business – how firms can succeed when government fails”.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Frans Cronje (CEO of the Institute of Race Relations),
  • Dawie Roodt (Chief Economist of the Efficient Group),
  • Prof Philipp Bagus (Professor of economics at Rey Juan Carlos University in Spain; recipient of the 2016 Ludwig Erhard Preis – the premier, annual German economics award)
  • Russell Lamberti (Head of ETM Macro Advisors)
  • Prof Willie Cronje (Alstom Chair for Clean Energy Systems Technology in the School of Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand)
  • Piet le Roux (CEO of AfriBusiness), and many more. The programme is extensive: From historical examples to the latest technology.
