Join Professor Oliver Saasa, Peter Leon and Ms Irmgard Erasmus as they discuss Zambia's Economic Meltdown with Ray Hartley and Henning Suhr of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.

Zambia's economy is in crisis with debt mounting and the COVID-19 pandemic. Already behind in payments for over $4m in loans, it has now suspended interest payments on some sovereign bonds. It is set to be the first country to default during the health crisis. What has caused this collapse? What are the implications for Southern Africa.

The Brenthurst Foundation and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung host a webinar with panellists Peter Leon, Oliver Saasa and Irmgard Erasmus on 6 November at 11h00.

Speakers Include:

Peter Leon - Partner with Herbert Smith Freehills, co-chair of its Africa practice and a former chair of the International Bar Association's mining law committee.

Oliver Saasa - Professor of International Economic Relations | CEO, Premier Consult Limited

Irmgard Erasmus - Senior Financial Economist, NKC African Economics
