Webinar: Trade and Investment Business Forum – 09 July 2020
About this Event
Presentation: SA’s Balance of Payments – Key to economic recovery.
Presented by Dr Roelof Botha, Economist and Joint Managing Director of GOPA Group Southern Africa (Pty) Ltd.
South Africa has enjoyed fundamental balance of payments stability for a quarter of a century, which has assisted in securing positive annual real growth each year since 1994 except in 2009, when the country was caught in the cross-fire of the global financial crisis and GDP shrank by 1.5%. Although the looming downturn caused by the coronavirus will be much worse, the recovery promises to be swift, with capital markets leading the way. When drawing on pre-pandemic trade and investment trends and assuming the same pattern of economic recovery as being experienced by our major trading partners, it is clear that South Africa’s balance of payments should materially assist the process of economic recovery.
