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.

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