Ann Bernstein: South Africa can Learn from Mexico’s Privatisation of Electricity Sector

How to Fix South AfricaHead of the Centre for Development and Enterprise Ann Bernstein recently spoke to John Maytham about the lessons South Africa can learn from Mexico’s recent development plan.

The contributor to How to Fix South Africa: The country’s leading thinkers on what must be done to create jobs, edited by Ray Hartley, explains how the Mexican president worked with the opposition party in 2012 to establish a fundamental structural reform package to set the economy on a higher growth path.

These radical changes include massive privatisation of the electricity sector, opening up the economy to foreign investors, encouraging competition in the telecommunications market and reforming key aspects of education. “South Africa is going to have to find political leaders that are truly committed to fundamental economic reform,” she says.
