    Francisco Gimeno - BC Analyst 4th IR in South Africa's impact is decisive for the future of the rest of the Sub-saharian area in Africa. The impact is going to become so strong and pervasive that unless countries shift their views on education, on job's training, economy, etc, the transition will be very hard. Although the country's agenda is yet centred on traditional policies, there are positive developments and voices in SA (and other African countries) signalling attitudes for change are there. This talk should be on the front of the 4th IR debate in SA.
