Our strategic focus is sub-Saharan Africa. It’s vital we keep working to enhance the business climate, and our own relevance, in this region and throughout the continent.
Whether we’re investing in infrastructure development, financing and advising governments, facilitating trade between markets, or partnering with organisations to address social challenges, all our efforts are geared towards building Africa’s financial capabilities.
In 2012, South Africa joined Brazil, Russia, India and China in the group of countries globally acknowledged as leaders of the world’s ‘new economy’. We’re proud of our involvement in the 2013 BRICS summit, a crucial platform for improving co-operation among these nations.
