The World Bank expects growth in South Africa to recover to 1.1% in 2018, from 0.8% in 2017, on the back of improving business sentiment, which should support a modest rise in investment. The January Global Economic Prospects report upgraded the bank’s estimate of South Africa’s 2017 growth performance by 0.2 of a percentage point, owing to a stronger-than-expected second half. The country is forecast to grow by 1.7% in 2019 and 2020.
