The three articles from the CEO's desk in the June, July and August 2011 editions of Civil Engineering make for interesting and thought-provoking reading. In many senses they also make depressing reading in their insights into the current situation in the civil engineering industry. In spite of the guarded optimism of the CEO we are actually facing a potential disaster in the coming years. How can we as a developing country afford to have young, and not so young and experienced engineers, made redundant because government cannot get its "ducks in a row"? With 50 years of experience in the consulting industry in many parts of the world, which has given me great satisfaction, it saddens me that this experience is being denied to many young and enthusiastic new entrants.
