I had lost track of this event last week and was not consciously thinking about its subject when I wrote my blog on business in South Africa.

It must have been a case of serendipity that I came across some points raised by the World Bank, which they consider to be some of the barriers to trade in South Africa. You may find it worthwhile to read it for background, which one may hope will prime you for Talitha's talk.

My congratulations to the Le Cap40 team and Talitha for organizing this event. I have found it highly informative and a real eye-opener; Talitha was able to present her subject matter in a very articulate and convincing manner.  I am glad I was able to benefit of this seminar.
