BMI View: The sluggish nature of the South African economy has created uncertainty for businesses,leading to a drop in investment activity. Nevertheless, the office commercial real estate sector hasperformed well, with good demand for premium grade units. An upward trend in retail sales indicates longtermpotential for retail real estate, and regarding the industrial sub-sector, there has been a rise inindustrial real estate acquisitions as companies seek to diversify their portfolios.South Africa is afflicted with high levels of poverty, rising unemployment, low consumer confidence andthe possibility of a recession. Real GDP growth has fallen in recent years and in 2015 is forecast at 1.4%,down from 1.5% in 2014, sparking fear of a recession as the economy struggles to recover from the longestdrawn-out industrial action since the end of apartheid and weak overseas demand. We believe interest rateswill rise, while high electricity prices are contributing to high inflation.

Electricity blackouts have alsoraised costs for businesses, as has labour unrest, and there has been little response from the government tomake the necessary reforms to avoid a further deterioration in the business environment. Nevertheless,South Africa remains one of the best developed economies in the continent, with significant imports andexports, and will retain significant investor attention, although we see a large proportion of players holdingoff until the economy begins a clear recover.
