South Africa to upgrade ports of entry to boost regional trade, says Gigaba

South African Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba on Wednesday said government was planning to upgrade the country’s key ports of entry in a bid to improve regional trade and curb slow economic growth. Gigaba said that there were many opportunities across the Sub-Saharan African region that South African companies could capitalise on as the region’s growth outlook had been renewed and was now expected to recover to 2.6% this year, and 3.8% in 2018.
