In a Business Day Dialogue, National Planning Commission's (NPC) Miriam Altman explains that electricity shortages are causing some mines to run at 10% below capacity. This is inhibiting new investments. She says that basic logistics such as water, energy and telecommunications need to be improved, with greater efficiency bringing costs down.

Altman says the NPC and Treasury concur that a 7% rate of sustained growth is required, within the prevailing macroeconomic climate, but few countries have achieved this.
Altman says that to achieve a significant rate of growth usually requires a large domestic market or access to regional markets, as in the case of Dubai which targets the Gulf region. On, chief economist for the Standard Bank Group, Goolam Ballim, said that over the past decade our trade in Africa had risen from R70 billion to R220 billion, with a trade surplus of R40 billion, excluding the Southern African Customs Union countries. He believes there is scope to expand value-added products, while over half of our exports to the continent are industrial.
Miriam Altman of the National Planning Commission notes that small businesses struggle because they don't have access to working capital and the state and corporates don't commit to paying suppliers within 30 days.
