Economics lecturer nominated for G20 Youth Summit

Posted by Johan Fourie on 2013-03-07

Kholekile Malindi, a Junior Lecturer at the Economics Department, has recently been nominated and selected to represent Stellenbosch University at the 7th annual G20 Youth Summit to be held at St. Petersburg, Russia, in April. Stellenbosch University will also be represented by two students, Sandy Majola and Emma Johannes. The trip to Russia is generously sponsored by the Rector’s office.

The G20 Youth Summit is one of four main events that are scheduled to run concurrently with each other and organised by the G20 Youth Forum. The three other events include a Conference, an International Young Parliamentarians’ Debate, and an Alumni Meeting. With regards to the Youth Summit, 150 to 200 students and young experts in G20 countries from the fields of economics, law, international relations and finance are selected to be young Heads of States and Ministerial delegates. Kholekile will be attending the Summit as the Minister of Finance. The end result of the Summit will be a report containing recommendations discussed and approved by the Summit participants. The report will be handed over to G20 Heads of States and international institutions like the IMF.

Kholekile has just recently returned from a 6 month student semester exchange to Georg-August University Goettingen. The international exposure and participation in international youth leadership events will provide an excellent springboard to launch Kholekile’s already promising academic career.
