Daniel Mminele: The G20 agenda for financial regulatory reform in 2014
14 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Cape Town:  At the time of the Brisbane G20 Summit in November 2014, four core financial reform deliverables will be assessed which ties in with the FSB focus for the upcoming year on “completing the job”. The policy priorities needed to “complete the job” are: building the resilience of financial institutions; ending too-big-to-fail; transforming shadow banking; and making derivatives markets safer. The FSB will also undertake a review of its governance structures and submit a final report to the G-20 Leaders Summit. I will address each of these policy priorities separately, without going into too much detail, in particular in those areas I have already touched on such as the OTC derivatives market.

13 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Cape Town:  South Africa's bilateral trade with China grew by almost a third between 2012 and last year, says Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies. In a written reply to a parliamentary question on Wednesday he said China had been the country's single largest trading partner since 2009. “Two-way trade between South Africa and China continues to grow. It increased from R205 billion in 2012 to R270bn at the end of 2013; a 32 percent increase.”

SA 'non-tariff barriers' stifling intra-SADC trade - Fundanga
13 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Lusaka: South Africa's unfair trading practices are frustrating a diversified intra-regional trade in SADC, says Dr Caleb Fundanga. Making a presentation at a Consumer Unit Trust Society (CUTS)-organised discussion on regional trade on Monday evening, Dr Fundanga, the former Bank of Zambia governor, said South Africa still had in place a number of non-tariff barriers where some agricultural products from the region cannot enter their market for one reason or another. "Zambian beans for example cannot enter that market yet our beans is better than most of that South African beans found on their shelves," he said. "Recently, Vice-President Dr Guy Scott told Parliament that Zambian grapes cannot be sold in South Africa. The South Africans alleged that the grapes were affected by a certain disease. These are non-tariff barriers that need to be removed."

South Africa: "securing our borders"
13 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Pretoria:  In compliance with the Cabinet decision of 2009, the SANDF was required to return to the border safe guarding function. With effect from 2010, SANDF adopted a phased in approach and had presence in the border areas ensuring the protection of South Africa’s territorial integrity against cross border crime and illegal activities.  The deployment of resources and military personnel has been done in phases over the 5 year period.  Currently the SANDF is deployed in 7 of the 9 provinces covering Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Free State, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape and the North West Provinces respectively.

SA's trade and investment: 1994-2014
12 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Pretoria:  Democratic South Africa prioritised developing bilateral political and economic relations, especially with African countries. Since 1994, it has signed 624 agreements and established 40 bilateral mechanisms – nearly half of the total number of bilateral mechanisms in place – with countries on the continent. However, there have been challenges with the implementation of some of these agreements. South Africa’s export markets have changed considerably over the past 20 years. New markets have emerged, while the share of exports to some traditional markets, such as the United Kingdom, Japan and Europe, has declined. China has emerged as South Africa’s most important export trading partner since 2009, with its share of non-gold merchandise exports measuring 12.9 percent in 2012, compared with 0.8 percent in 1994. India is now South Africa’s fifth-largest export destination, having overtaken both the United Kingdom and Switzerland.

Tripartite ‘growth pole’ diagnostic reports: potentials and prospects for minerals-based industrialisation
12 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Pretoria:  Since its establishment in 2009, Trade Mark Southern Africa (TMSA) has supported the Tripartite of the Common Market of Eastern and Southern Africa, the Southern African Development Community and the East African Community, in developing and implementing its regional integration agenda.  This involves supporting the design and planned implementation of the Tripartite Free Trade Area, improving the economic competitiveness of the region and reducing costs of cross-border transactions through a transport corridor approach addressing both trade facilitation issues and infrastructure constraints. Focused industrial development is essential in the COMESA-EAC-SADC Tripartite region to fundamentally change the economy and to promote high yield sectors. Such development brings not only an improvement in the GDP and job provision, but promotes knowledge accumulation and technological sophistication that have far reaching benefits for the economy.  This research was conducted under the topic “Tripartite ‘Growth Pole’ Diagnostic Reports: Analysis of Potentials and Prospects for Minerals-Based Industrialisation.”  

Namibia: Spotlight on new livestock export requirements
10 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Windhoek:  The new health requirements for livestock exports to South Africa were put under the spotlight last Friday when the Namibia Livestock Producers Organisation (LPO) called an urgent meeting to discuss various burning issues like alternative international marketing possibilities and the condition of the border fences with neighbouring countries in light of the proposed strict new export requirements for exporting to South Africa. A deadline of May 1 has been set by the South African authorities for the implementation of the new requirements, which have been described by representatives of the Namibian livestock export industry as 'impossible'. One of the speakers at last Friday's meeting, Fanie du Plessis of Farmers Meat Market, made it clear that Namibia should look at the possibilities and profitability of alternative African markets.  According to him, a big market exists in Africa, especially in countries such as the DRC, Angola, Zambia and Tanzania. Farmers Meat Market plans further development of these markets for their products and this could open the door for other exporters to follow suit.

SACU: the inconvenient institution?
8 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Windhoek:  There is no denying the fact that the region’s oldest trade agreement, the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) - made up of Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland - has gone into paralysis mode in terms of advancing the regional integration and common policy development and implementation agenda. This does not mean SACU is about to be finally killed off by South Africa or that member states are ready to dump SACU for a better alternative. It is, however, plausible given the current contemporary developments on trade and regional integration that SACU has become an inconvenient institution.

Mauritius tops African index on economic transformation
7 March 2014, 12:00 pm

Port Louis:  The African Index on Economic Transformation (ACET) ranks Mauritius first in overall economic transformation ahead of South Africa, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Uganda, Kenya, and Gabon in its 2014 report launched in partnership with the Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) on Monday in South Africa. The African Transformation Index is meant to provide a common quantitative tool to measure the progress of countries. The research aims to map the African landscape on key policy issues, to identify best practice in Africa and around the world.   ACET assesses African countries based on the following criterion namely: diversification of production and exports; export competitiveness and gains; productivity increases; technology upgrading; and human economic well-being improvements, particularly by expanding formal productive employment.
