Despite socio-political challenges and  the serial upheavals in South Africa’s mining and agricultural industries, Africa’s largest economy remains the best place to do business in Africa in terms of business destination, a research compiled by business services company Grant Thornton has shown.

The report, titled ‘Emerging Markets Opportunity Index: High Growth Economies’, ranked South Africa 14th out of 27 largest emerging economies surveyed (in terms of their potential for business investment ); significantly showing SA as the highest rated economy on the African continent.

The report includes data from Grant Thornton’s International Business Report (IBR), research from the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the United Nations Human Development report with key indicators from factors like the economic size, population, wealth, involvement in world trade, growth prospects and levels of development.
