Denmark - South Africa
Partnership for the Future
South Africa has a quite strategic position in Africa as the continent’s political and economic heavyweight with global influence in a number of areas. Thus, South Africa is an important partner for Denmark in a globalised world.
The country has experienced rapid change over the past decade. Today, South Africa is one of the most interesting emerging economies and despite the continued limited size of the economy its growth projections are extremely positive and purchasing power of its large population is increasing. Furthermore, South Africa is characterized by market-friendly policies and political stability, ensuring an attractive climate for investment and trade. South Africa is in many ways an attractive gateway to Africa.
In the future, Denmark will be an active partner and constructive player in South Africa’s growth and in the country’s increasingly important political position on the African continent and in South-South cooperation. The objective is two-fold: we need to be better equipped to take advantage of the many interesting political and economic opportunities offered by cooperation with South Africa, and simultaneously this will be advantageous for Denmark’s role and position in a globalised world.
