Thursday, 11 June 2020 at 13:00 (CAT)
Join PLAAS for a webinar on “Competition, Inequality and B-BBEE: Lessons from quota allocations in industrial fisheries” featuring Prof Stefano Ponte (Centre for Business and Development Studies, Copenhagen Business School) and Dr Thando Vilakazi (Centre for Competition, Regulation and Economic Development, University of Johannesburg). The session will be chaired by PLAAS's Prof Moenieba Isaacs.
The speakers will share insights from their recent working paper which draws on detailed interviews with industry players in the Hake Deep Sea Trawl fishery in South Africa. The paper examines the interactions between industrial fishery quota allocations by the government, black economic empowerment policy and transformation, and competition dynamics to assess the potential and limitations of regulatory and market approaches in addressing inequality in South Africa.
