Cape Town - The business climate in South Africa could further be improved if the constructive present economic developments could be augmented, according to the SA Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI).
 
"Business and investor confidence depend on whether this window of opportunity will be seized and the positive sentiment be supported by responsible governance and accountability," SACCI said in its latest Business Confidence Index (BCI) report.

According to the latest BCI, the business climate in SA tightened slightly between January 2017 and February 2017, but was less troubled than before the fourth quarter of 2016.

SACCI said the improvement of the BCI over the last five months points towards the stabilisation of the business climate in SA caused by changing local and global economic and political circumstances.
