BFM interviews Jomo Kwame Sundaram, a renowned developmental economist and member of the Council of Eminent Persons.
Jomo tells us the world is heading for difficult times not helped by a squandered decade after the financial crisis of 2008 to create a fairer economic model for all.
The discussion continues with what direction the country should take to continue its industrialization plans and what other reforms should be prioritised.
