Entering the South African economy as a foreign multinational can be a daunting task. However, amidst the challenges, there are abundant opportunities and benefits if your strategy is implemented correctly.

South Africa, often referred to as the “business gateway to the continent,” boasts a well-developed economy and a globally renowned financial sector. However, it is crucial to navigate the extensive and unique legislation and policies adopted by the government to drive changes in the racial construct of our economy. The government is resolute in transforming the flow of wealth within the country and is committed to an aggressive agenda to fundamentally reshape its economic drivers.

The Codes of Good Practice for Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) have undergone extensive development over the past decade, with significant revisions in both 2013 and 2019. B-BBEE is not a new concept, and it is here to stay until the core objectives are achieved.

Operating in South Africa entails various dimensions that can influence business feasibility. It is crucial for interested multinationals to be well-versed in the challenges and opportunities to effectively manage risks.
