IHS Markit Regional Economic Data Forum

Are the worst over for Sub-Saharan Africa and South Africa?

The world is experiencing a synchronized global economic recovery.  Investor sentiment towards emerging markets remains favourable, while stronger oil and other commodity prices support currencies and a slightly looser monetary policy stance in the Sub-Saharan Africa region.

IHS Markit projects stronger growth on the continent and in South Africa during 2018.  However, many short-term challenges and downside risks remain in place for South Africa, with a possible downgrade by Moody's, the impact of Day Zero in Cape Town, the uncertainty around #FeesMustFall and higher taxes all expected to cloud South Africa's economic outlook during the first half of the year.

Please join us on the 28th of February 2018 to explore these issues.
