Genesis was engaged by a global mining house to assess the feasibility and then to design a national economic summit in South Africa.
The summit would be to introduce widespread reform in the economy at the highest levels, in effect, an “economic CODESA”.
It would also include a scenarios exercise and social-lab process. As it happened we advised against the summit on the basis that the political climate was not conducive to constructive dialogue.
The concept paper was used to build national consensus towards a new economic dialogue between business and the government.
