South Africa

An emerging country with great opportunities and deep inequalities

In 2014, South Africa celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the end of apartheid. Today, the country has a leading economic and political role on the African continent. As a member of the G20, it is also playing a greater part on the international stage. Yet South Africa is still two countries in one: a rich industrial nation that generates roughly one third of the entire economic output of Sub-Saharan Africa, and an emerging country with deep inequalities and massive structural problems. It is against this background that KfW Development Bank supports the country to overcome its structural problems and in the protection on global public goods.
