CID South Africa Growth Initiative


Project Description | Working Papers | In the News | Authors


Project Description

The Center for International Development has convened a panel of international experts from Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Michigan, and other institutions to work with South African economists to study that country’s constraints to and opportunities for accelerated growth. This multi-year project is an initiative of the National Treasury of the Republic of South Africa within the government’s Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative (ASGI-SA), which seeks to consolidate the gains of post-transition economic stability and accelerate growth in order to create employment and improve the livelihoods of all South Africans. For more details, please send an e-mail to cid_southafrica@ksg.harvard.edu.
