South Africa is one of the most sophisticated, diverse and promising emerging markets globally.
Strategically located at the tip of the African continent, South Africa is a key investment location, both for the market opportunities that lie within its borders and for the opportunity that exists to use the country as a gateway to the rest of the continent, a market of nearly 1-billion people.
South Africa has enormous potential as an investment destination, offering a unique combination of highly developed first-world economic infrastructure with a vibrant emerging market economy.
It is also one of the most advanced, broad-based industrial and productive economies in Africa.

There are 25 restaurants in the group’s African division, outside South Africa. The company has nine outlets in Mauritius.

Policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic have argued for years how to span the bridge between peaceful Europeans from Venus and realist Americans from Mars. The truth is, the debate on our diverging approaches to the challenges of global order has already been overtaken by events. Both Venus and Mars are, after all, part of the same solar system, and subject to the same Newtonian laws of physics. And these increasingly work against the North-Atlantic and Western world. China‘s 1.3 billion population dwarfs that of the EU and the U.S. Europe and America have seen their share of world trade fall to a combined total of below 30 percent in the face of tough competition from India, China, and other key trading nations set on converting their cheap labor industries into technologically sophisticated economies.
