As the largest city in South Africa, Johannesburg is a logical location for The Economist Corporate Network
The greater Johannesburg area (i.e. Gauteng) contributes over a third of South Africa’s GDP and dominates the country’s economy across most major sectors. Johannesburg’s world-class infrastructure and talent pool have resulted in many large indigenous and foreign-headquartered firms using the city as a hub for their regional operations. Given its importance in the context of the country and more broadly in Southern Africa, Johannesburg is a logical location for The Economist Corporate Network. With a vibrant and engaged membership, it provides a welcoming and informative network to interact with. A busy schedule of events and meetings provide members with exclusive opportunities to hear invited speakers share views of trends and developments in the country and region.
