African Infrastructure Tracker—South Africa

African Infrastructure Tracker—South Africa

South Africa is the southernmost country in the African continent, with a coastline of 2,954 km stretching along the South Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean in the south. It is a member of the Southern African Customs Union (SACU), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), and the Tripartite Free Trade Area (TFTA). This connectivity has provided significant regional trade opportunities for the country, facilitating significant developments in transport, energy, and social infrastructure. The government of South Africa has encouraged enhanced private participation to facilitate rapid developments in the road, rail, ports, airport, ICT, and social infrastructure of the country in the next 5 years.
