The Governor of the South African Reserve Bank (SARB), Lesetja Kganyago, will present a public lecture titled, “Sound policy for better growth: South Africa 2020”.

The lecture will be presented today (04/03) at the University of the Free State’s (UFS) Bloemfontein campus.

Kganyago is hosted by the university’s Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences (EMS).

The Governor’s lecture is set to draw on his more than 20 years of experience in formulating and implementing public policy, having spent this time at the Reserve Bank and at the National Treasury.

According to Prof. Philippe Burger, UFS pro-vice-chancellor: Poverty, Inequality and Economic Development as well as vice-dean (strategic projects) in the Faculty of EMS, during Kganyago’s time at the National Treasury, a fun­damental reform in the management of the national debt portfolio was completed and several public finance and financial market reforms were achieved.

“The Governor’s lecture is of paramount importance to students given his internationally known pursuit of sound monetary policy.

“To have the Governor at the UFS to share with students his perspective on the South African economy, will allow students to hear what good monetary and economic policy entails, and to hear it from someone who is one of the key decision makers in the economy,” said Burger.
