South Africa in the Digital Age

The South Africa in the Digital Age (SADA), an urgent multi-stakeholder initiative to develop a forward-looking digital economy strategy for South Africa, has released a report which assessed where digital and other technologies could create work for South Africans. One of the key findings was that South Africa can create five-hundred-thousand new jobs over ten years through globally traded services. Mark Schoeman, Manager for youth and technology at Genesis Analytics, one of the first economics-based consulting firms in Africa, and SADA strategy primer convenor speaks to Channel Africa's Lebogang Mabange.
