Inclusive growth is one of the prerequisites for rapid and sustained poverty reduction as it allows the majority of a nation’s population to contribute to and benefit from economic growth.

A robust developmental path for cities requires a city that is: able to direct its scarce resources efficiently, an institutional environment that is able to drive its developmental trajectory and, an effective civil society network that demands the highest level of accountability and transparency. In this regard, a number of institutional elements within the South African economy require urgent attention.

 By convening critical stakeholders from the government sector, the private sector, academia, labour and civil society, the Summit will provide a platform for information sharing between practitioners, researchers, communities and other parties of interest to collectively sculpt a strategy and plan that is anchored on the development of innovative and sustainable inclusive growth prospects for the City of Tshwane. Most significantly, the summit will result in the development of a joint action plan that will translate the City’s aspirations into reality, in a pro-active attempt to arresting the prevailing low growth – high unemployment environment that characterize the City of Tshwane’s economic landscape.
