North-West University: Sustainable growth strategies and African Union (AU) Agenda 2063 – Interview with Minister Naledi Pandor

The North-West University Business School’s Prof Raymond Parsons interviews Minister Naledi Pandor and unpacks the Department of International Relations and Cooperation’s (DIRCO’s) vision and mission in Africa and to examine whether the relationship between DIRCO and business can be strengthened for this purpose.

To this end the role of diplomatic missions on the continent and their interaction with South African business has been interrogated in this video to see in what ways South Africa’s economic interests in Africa can be further promoted and expanded.

The role of DIRCO in the economic dimensions of the AU in general – and the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (ACFTA) in particular – has also been explored in the discussion.
