Reflecting on the first half of 2013…

Can you believe that the first half of 2013 is almost over! And what a year it is proving to be, with the recovery and weakening of the Rand and better than expected economic data, it is becoming increasingly difficult to predict the country's financial and economic future.   With South Africa being classified as an emerging market, many non-financial events can influence the financial and business world.  It is with interest then to consider our course on “High Growth Economies Opportunity Index”.  This course discusses the International Business Report’s (IBR) quarterly survey of top management’s responses regarding the views and expectations of global business growth prospects and their international expansion strategy with regard to the emerging markets opportunity index.  It also gives us insight into what the emerging market opportunity index is.

Otherwise, enjoy the chilly weather as it seems winter has finally arrived and we gear up to facing the opportunities and challenges that the second half of the year has to offer!
