Report summary

South African economic growth has slowed in recent years from the highs of the past decade. Exports of key commodities have plateaued,while domestic growth has been hampered by elevated unemployment and infrastructure constraints. The government has ambitious plans to return rapid growth to South Africa, but unlocking the economy's vast potential will not be easy. With expansion in the resource sector likely to be minimal, other sources of growth must be found.
