Topic: South Africa – A Mid-Year Report Card

July marks the start of the second half of the year, so it’s a good point to pause, draw breath and assess what lies ahead for the nation and its economy. But this is no ordinary mid-year review, because South Africa has just gone through a vitally important election. What are the key challenges that lie ahead for President Ramaphosa and his government and where are we likely to be five years from now?

Business editor and journalist Chris Gibbons will give his views and also outline his current investment strategy, as it relates to South Africa’s current circumstances.
