He has extensive experience in a wide range of public policy areas – ranging from industrial policy, SMMEs, technology and taxation to foreign direct investment, consumer credit, and local economic development. Keith Lockwood is skilled at developing economic models.
These include the development of macroeconomic impact assessments; growth forecasting models at national, provincial and metropolitan levels; and a composite index aimed at tracking business confidence in South Africa.
Keith has a good understanding of a variety of aspects of economic development, including industrialisation, industrial policy, regional and spatial development, the effective use of incentives, the analysis of local and regional economies to determine trends and identify areas of revealed comparative and competitive advantage, and the ability to analyse supply chains.
In addition, Keith regularly provides macroeconomic overviews and forecasts to mainly private sector organisations. He is an adjunct faculty member of the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) – an internationally recognised and rated business school – where he lectures to company groups as well as on academic programmes.
