About the Geography                  

South Africa is a developing, young country with a median age of 25.9 years and has a population of 52.98 million. It has a well-developed constitutional democracy. The country has brought economic reforms, which have led to macroeconomic stability and one of the largest stock exchanges in the world. The country has a well-developed transport infrastructure, sound macro conditions and robust financial and legal framework.

South Africa is among the top developing nations but faces problems such as skills deficit, poor labor relations, lack of electricity, violent crime, corruption, unemployment rate and immigration laws. In order to attract foreign investors, the government has initiated simple tax rules, investment incentives, protection of intellectual rights, and better regulatory policies through foreign investment grant, skills support program, the Protection of Investment Act, and the strategic industrial project programs. South Africa has great potential for foreign investors as it is largely a free market economy, has a transparent regulatory framework, a large population, access to raw materials and political stability.

The country is the third largest FDI recipient in Africa with most of it going to the telecommunications sector. The government is taking steps to curb the unemployment rate and provide continuous electricity. It has a large English-speaking population and hence is a popular choice for foreign investment.
