About South Africa
South-Africa, officially Republic of South-Africa, is a country on the southern end of Africa. It is a developing country with, according to world standards, an average income level. The financial, legal, communication, energy and transport sectors are well developed as is the country’s infrastructure, but the unemployment rate, being 26%, is still especially high and the economical problems emerging from the apartheid system haven’t been solved. The government aims to improve economic growth and attract more foreign investments by softening labor legislation, accelerating privatization and diminishing government spending.
