The COVID-19 global pandemic has created unprecedented uncertainties. The unforeseen circumstances resulting from the national lockdown has caused tremendous frustration. The public and private sector collaboration on managing the ramifications of the national lockdown remains challenging. The call to fully open up economic activity has caused indifferences in political and public opinion.

State-Owned Enterprises remain under severe economic pressure. The morale and productivity of public servants is imperative in changing the economic trajectory of South Africa post-COVID-19. As such, this webinar will bring together diverse SOE governance experts that will debate the impacts, opportunities and innovative solutions related to COVID-19.

Exploring decision-making processes, ethics and risk management frameworks, governance considerations relating to working from home and social distancing, the future of business administration and company secretarial practices will be at the centre of this virtual roundtable.

It is undeniable that State-Owned Enterprises continue to be strategically positioned to advance the economic sustainability and socio-economic development priorities of nation building, social cohesion, poverty alleviation as well as protection of universal human rights.
