The involvement of youth is South Africa’s growth outlook


As the country’s economic outlook takes a turn for the worst, with the GDP contracting by 0.7 in the first quarter of 2017, a stronger economic growth is required to return the public finances to a sustainable position. This will put South Africa back on a path of rising employment and increasing prosperity and of course, South Africa’s youth as well as the entrepreneurs need to be at the centre of this. Joining CNBC Africa to unpack this are Matsi Modise, Managing Director, Simodisa, Olebogeng Sentsho, Head of Operations at Yeabo Mining and Vusi Thembekwayo, Venture Capitalist.
