NATION BRAND PERFORMANCE

!


Global context

GLOBAL CONTEXT

During 1990’s Simon Anholt coined the term ‘Nation Branding’. The way a country is ‘seen’ or ‘perceived’ makes the difference when business leaders consider investing in SA.

  • South Africa improves its position in the annual Anholt-Gfk Roper Nation Brand Index from 37 in 2010 to 36 in 2011.

  • Significant changes in the global environment and international arena:

    • Global Financial Crisis

    • Greek sovereign debt crisis in the Eurozone

    • SA’s inclusion in the BRIC – nucleus of opportunity. This bloc currently contributes 1/3 of world growth in GDP; and 75% global growth by 2020 (Ernst & Young).

    • SA’s strategic position on the African continent

    • Sub-saharan Africa recognised as a key emerging market to drive global economic growth

    • Business Monitor International predicts the regions economy of US$ 3.84 billion (by 2021) larger GDP than France.

    • If this growth persists the region will rank among top ten largest economies.

  • United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) – a significant decline in inward investment in SA due to reduced merger and acquisition activity in the market. Despite this decreased inward flow of investment ($9 billion in 2008, $5,4 billion in 2009 and $1,6 billion in 2010), investor confidence remained high for SA, (AT Kearney placed SA 11th best investment destination in November 2011).
