Special issue: Competitiveness

As the year draws to a close, INSAT takes an in-depth look at the concept of ‘competitiveness’ and how it has changed; indices to measure competitiveness and initiatives and reforms to improve country and fi rm competitiveness throughout Southern Africa.

There is an increased recognition that, in becoming a better place to do business, the countries of Southern Africa are not only competing with themselves and each other but also with other developing regions in the world.

We speak to a number of policy makers and business leaders from around the region and beyond, to get their views on competitiveness in Southern Africa; what is working well, what still needs to be done and how the public and private sectors are working, separately and together, to address the challenges that exist.
