After outlining the potential of an International Social Market Economy Prof. Dr. Köhler will discuss with Tanzanian experts. Prof. Benno Ndulu, Governor of the Bank of Tanzania, Dr. Camilius Kassala, Member of the Institute of Finance Management at the University of Dar es Salaam, and Pascal Lesoinne, Managing Director of Tanzania Portland Cement confirmed their assistance. The discussion will focus on the Tanzanian, respectively the African, perspective concerning a possible International Social Market Economy. Ethical aspects of doing business and core principles like freedom, solidarity and social responsibility of entrepreneurs as well as the question of their practical implementation will be discussed. The audience will have the opportunity to take part in the discussion.

Additionally, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) Tanzania, for the first time, will present the “Guidelines for Prosperity, Social Justice and Sustainable Economic Activity” translated into Kiswahili. It is the intention of KAS to make these core principles of an International Social Market Economy accessible to the Kiswahili speaking public of the East African region and thus provide a contribution to the debate on the future structure of the global economic system.
