SUP­PLY SIDE DO­ING WELL

Finweek English Edition - - Economic Trends - BY GRETA STEYN

THE SUP­PLY or pro­duc­tion side of South Africa’s econ­omy is re­cov­er­ing im­pres­sively, with strong year-on-year growth fig­ures for both min­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing. That’s likely to boost gross do­mes­tic prod­uct for first quar­ter 2010 and could help the econ­omy post a growth rate of about 3% for the year, which would be much bet­ter than Fi­nance Min­is­ter Pravin Gord­han’s growth pro­jec­tion of 2,3%.
