Wednesday 17th October 2018

General Electric (GE) has called on the South African government to reconsider investing in a further 1 600 MW of coal-fired power generation capacity, describing it as "the lifeblood" of South Africa's economy, a significant job creator and important source of foreign exchange.

African countries can leapfrog technologies, if they understand the requirements

Wednesday 17th October 2018

The world, in trade and industrial terms, is being disrupted by both technological and political developments, providing opportunities but also posing risks to African countries.
