On the official programme, the Finance Minister is due to discuss radical transformation of the economy under the heading, An insight, an idea with Malusi Gigaba.
The phrase "radical economic transformation" has been the hallmark of those supporting Zuma and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma but Gigaba has also used the phrase "inclusive growth".
Delegates here will also discuss leadership in an era of disruption.
President Zuma has formally welcomed all the delegates, saying he hopes this event will focus on education and infrastructure development.
