Johannesburg – The credit downgrade and persistent political uncertainty have had a bearing on South Africa's prospects, but there are still opportunities for the economy to recover.
This is according to Econometrix chief economist Dr Azar Jammine. who was speaking at a seminar on the downgrade to junk status in Sandton on Thursday.
Jammine said the “sad” thing about the events over the last six weeks following the Cabinet reshuffle is that there had been signs of green shoots in the economy. He highlighted six positive factors that could usher in an economic recovery.
