SA in 2018 - Great expectations but structural challenges abound
Occasional Contributor

2018 is set to be a defining year for the South African economy and political sphere. In this webinar, Standard Bank Chief Economist Goolam Ballim, outlines the immense challenges faced by the National Treasury in responding to a precarious fiscal equation and the ever-present threat of further downgrades. From a political perspective, the year ahead will center on the ANC’s capacity for self-correction, as well as the opposition’s response to the new political climate in which they will need to operate. SimonFreemantle, Standard Bank Senior Political Economist, will discuss these and other matters concerning the political outlook for the year ahead.
