Public Economics Winter School
In July 2016 National Treasury and GTAC hosted the first Public Economics Winter School at the campus of the University of Pretoria. The
YouTube video of the Winter School is now available. Over 100 students and young economists attended the inaugural Winter School, and had ample time to engage with National Treasury staff, academics and international public policy experts. This platform provided an opportunity to cast a spotlight on some aspects of the economic policy and development challenges, while drawing on experience from elsewhere and reviewing key principles of public economics and policy analysis.
GTAC also published a special
Newsletter reflecting on the Winter School. The Newsletter shares highlights from Minister Gordhan’s
welcoming speech, feedback from the students about what worked
and what did not, and some media exposure during the Winter School.
