Allowing more skilled foreigners into SA will make us all more prosperous
South Africa is suffering an extreme skills shortage, says Aurik Business Accelerator founder Pavlo Phitidis.
Failing public education and emigration is chipping away at the country’s industrial base.
We built our economy primarily on the export of dwindling commodities.
To keep on growing sustainably, we must turn our backs on consumption and extraction and become a value-adding economy.
Phitidis says we can, in a single bold move, secure leadership in Africa in both tech and industry and create three million jobs in the next five years.
Immigration can save our economy and make us more prosperous, says Phitidis.
For more detail and examples of immigration leading to increased prosperity, listen to the interview in the audio below.
