Neva Makgetla

Neva Seidman Makgetla (born 1956) is an American–South African economist who is currently attached to Trade & Industrial Policy Strategies, an independent think tank based in Pretoria. She rose to prominence as the head of the policy unit at the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) between 2000 and 2006. She was a member of the National Executive Committee of the ANC, Cosatu's Tripartite Alliance partner, from 2019 to 2022.

During apartheid, Makgetla was an academic economist with close ties to the exiled African National Congress (ANC). She moved to South Africa during the democratic transition and subsequently became a key figure in debates about post-apartheid labour policy. Before her seven-year stint at Cosatu, she was an economist on the Reconstruction and Development Programme, both during the development of the policy and during its implementation through Jay Naidoo's ministerial office.

Elsewhere in the civil service, she has worked for the Department of Labour, the Department of Public Service and Administration, the Development Bank of Southern Africa, and the Presidency under Thabo Mbeki. Most recently, she was head of economic policy in the Department of Economic Development from 2010 until 2015, when she joined TIPS. Her primary economic interests are in industrial policy, value-chain analysis, and employment creation. Provided by Wikipedia
