In a post-pandemic world, the disruption to global supply chains presents an opportunity to stimulate local production. Industrialisation, infrastructure, manufacturing, and tourism are all labour intensive, having the potential to reduce chronic unemployment. 

Key to achieving this is increasing energy availability levels which currently cannot meet demand even within a weakened economy. It is imperative that we get this right. 

Join our panel of experts and industry leaders as we discuss and debate our economic prospects. 

Professor Justin Barnes, executive director of Toyota Wessels Institute for Manufacturing Studies (TWIMS), will host this conference. 

Speakers to be announced shortly.
