This report provides an estimate of the current macro socio-political and economic environment in South Africa, highlighting the continuing influence of the political infrastructure that arose around Jacob Zuma, and, thus, the likelihood that, over the short to medium term, the ruling party will prioritise unity over structural reform.

The CRA does not anticipate marked improvements in the unemployment rate or per capita GDP levels over the medium term, but remains confident that the social fabric of the country remains sound enough to considerably mitigate the risk of social fragmentation over the medium term.
