Connecting for Growth, Inclusion and ProsperityThe evidence that comes from the recent performance of the South African economy is deeply concerning. Since 2012, economic growth has steadily ratcheted lower and has sat below population growth for three years running. To add to this parlous state, at the end of 2016 and the start of 2017, economic growth went negative taking the South African economy into recession.
Is 2018 likely to be more of the same or will economic growth pick up moderately? Does consumer confidence and future investment hinge largely on the outcome of the ANC elective conference in December?
For answers to these questions and more exclusive insights from business leaders, economists, analysts and investors book now for this highly anticipated conference.
