The School of Construction Economics and Management hosts this panel discussion.

This discussion brings together stakeholders from academia, business, and government to reflect on key issues and factors contributing to current developments in the South African construction industry. Various industry associations have expressed concern and investors are pulling out of big construction projects, while some engineers consider taking their skills elsewhere as armed gangs violently disrupt construction projects. The violence and intimidation has led to some major projects in the Eastern and Western Cape being abandoned.
