Trade and Industrial Policy Strategies (TIPS)
Established at the request of senior policy-makers of the new South African Government in 1996, TIPS is an independent, non-profit economic research institution. TIPS is a leader in independent economic policy analysis and research in pursuit of development in Africa. We are active in both the South African and Southern African economic policy arenas and co-ordinate a wide network of established researchers.
Our aim is to remain responsive to the local policy environment, government and other clients' research and information needs; to deliver high-quality, policy-relevant research; and to maintain an overt and strong interest in public policy in the areas associated with developing country economic policy.
TIPS joined the GEC in 2013.
“The transition to sustainability is not an environmental issue but a socio-economic challenge which has ramification at all levels of economic development.”
