TRADE and In­dus­try Min­is­ter Rob Davies said he was at the World Eco­nomic Fo­rum to bet­ter un­der­stand the Fourth In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion and its im­pact on the world, and es­pe­cially work­ers. Davies is part of a high-level gov­ern­ment, busi­ness and civil so­ci­ety del­e­ga­tion, led by Deputy Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa, at WEF in Davos-Klosters to sell South Africa to the in­ter­na­tional in­vest­ment com­mu­nity. Speak­ing from the Congress Cen­tre in Davos yesterday, Davies said: “As an in­dus­try min­is­ter I fol­low closely the Fourth In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion,” cit­ing the re­search and anal­y­sis be­ing done and pre­sented at WEF. On the is­sue of the ad­vance­ment in tech­nol­ogy, he said: “We see some al­ready in South Africa, but oth­ers are on the hori­zon. My ques­tion is: But what about the work­ers?” Pre­vi­ous in­dus­trial rev­o­lu­tions had af­fected only cer­tain in­dus­tries, but the Fourth In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion would af­fect ev­ery­one. – ANA
