 President Jacob Zuma says measures have been put in place to ensure the economy’s resilience is sustained, as the world economy continues to experience sluggish growth. South Africa, like  all other developing nations, could not emerge unscathed from the turbulent global economic conditions following the 2008 economic crisis. “I appointed an Inter-Ministerial Committee in January this year to further support and assist investors to leverage existing trade and investment opportunities in our country. In the recent past, I dispatched a team of South Africans led by the Minister of Finance to interface with investors abroad. “These efforts, among others, have started yielding positive results,” said the President. He said Government has worked hard to ensure the energy constraints the country experienced last year are addressed.
