The Report: South Africa 2016

The second-largest economy in Africa after Nigeria, South Africa benefits from some of the most sophisticated financial markets in the world, paired with a robust regulatory system, and is also home to the headquarters of a number of major multinational players in the fields of industry, energy and financial services.

The country is also the world’s largest producer of platinum, in addition to being a major global supplier of gold, coal, diamonds and manganese, as well as a variety of other minerals. Despite its large and diversified economy, South Africa continues to face economic hurdles, including high unemployment, currency volatility, power outages and frequent labour stoppages.
