WE MUST MARKET OUR COUNTRY
South Africa has been presented with an ideal opportunity to promote itself to
foreigners as a prime investment destination following the successful staging of the
2010 Fifa World Cup.
We need to seize the moment, because if ever there was a time to present our country
to the international market, it is now after hosting such a successful World Cup.
For the most part, these foreigners will see South Africa as an opportunity and in
return, will bring much-needed foreign direct investment and create jobs - potentially on
a major scale - in a process which in itself may develop a momentum of its own and
become a virtual self-fulfilling prophecy of foreign direct investment, job creation and
ultimately GDP growth.
The market is probably nearer the end of the down cycle than the beginning and in fact
may have already begun to turn, while rental yields are likely to increase off their
current low levels and capital growth of a reasonable nature over the next five to seven
years is a real possibility.
South Africa's recent infrastructure upgrades have provided new transport nodes and
created new residential development opportunities which probably present some of the
best options currently available.
We must as South Africans stand together and continue to promote our country as
one of the best tourist destination the World has on offer. This will assist our economy
to recover from the world resession much faster as predicted.
