Business Opportunities

Article written by Ronnie Mbatsane (Managing Executive for SME Business & Sanah Gumede, Managing Executive for Strategy and Customer Value Management at Absa Relationship Banking)

The past few years have been difficult ones for South Africans. We have faced the COVID pandemic, intensified load shedding, civil unrest and natural disasters to name a few. Not only have these challenges interrupted our daily lives, but the environment has changed significantly as a result with profound social and financial implications for individuals as well as businesses. According to the Africa Report, a significant portion of South Africa’s young people are now unemployed, with women making up two-thirds of the job losses during the pandemic.

It is now almost a month since South Africa moved back to Alert Level 1 of lockdown. This has brought about much positivity from an economic perspective, providing businesses the opportunity to begin the process to recovery. On a social front, there are now fewer restrictions on the freedom of movement, improving the morale of many people and possibly reversing some of the job losses reported throughout 2020. Being at this level of lockdown tells us that we have done well as a country to help fight the battle, but the war is not over as many of the risks associated with the pandemic remain, with the looming potential of a third wave.

The fourth industrial revolution (4IR) is probably one of the most popular discussion points of the last few years.

Taking world-class healthcare into Africa
Article by Griffin Advisors According to the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the total value of Africa’s healthcare industry in 2016 is USD 70-billion. The pharmaceutical sector alone is worth just over USD 20-billion, and according to a McKinsey & Company report is expected to grow to between USD 40-billion to USD 65-billion by 2020. In spite of this, decades of under-investment in the health sector has left many countries in Africa with insufficient infrastructure (properly equipped and functioning hospitals and clinics), professional skills (specialists, doctors and nursing staff) and drugs and medicines to provide adequate healthcare to their citizens. This impacts on two levels: the poor who are wholly reliant on government facilities receive limited or no primary healthcare whilst people who can afford healthcare from private practioners cannot receive it because it is not available. It is of little surprise that WHO (World Health Organisation) healthcare indicators show Sub Saharan Africa lagging significantly behind other regions and falling well short of global averages. Adult and infant mortality remains high whilst life expectancy, despite improving over the past decade, is alarmingly low in certain countries.
