The Southern Africa Node of the Millennium Project (www.sampnode.org.za) acknowledges the many pieces of work, workshops and conferences held in South Africa and globally addressing the theme of the ‘2050 Global Work/Technology Scenarios’. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and the Prime Minister of Sweden Stefan Löfven, both former trade unionists, were appointed in May 2018 to co-chair the 28-member ILO Commission to oversee the preparation of a major report on the 2050 Global Work/Technology Scenarios to be published in early 2019.
During his maiden state of the nation address, President Ramaphosa stated that: “Government would soon establish a Digital Industrial Revolution Commission, which will include the private sector and civil society, to ensure that our country is in a position to seize the opportunities and manage the challenge of rapid advances in information and communication technology”.
