  • Domestic economy is in recession GDP contracted by 6.4% in Q1 2009, on an annualised basis

  • The crisis threatens South Africa’s industrial base:

  • - Manufacturing production decreased by 11,7% in March ‘09

  • - 23 of 39 industrial subsectors experienced output declines, including in basic steel products (-24,1%), autos (-26.8%), chemicals (-8,8%)

  • Labour-intensive sectors (wood products, leather and clothing & textiles) also declined

  • Feb’09: manufacturing capacity utilisation dropped from 84,6% to 78,6%

  • Mining production decreased by 12.8% in March 2009. The decline was driven by PGM (-17,1%) and diamonds (-52,2%)

  • Company liquidations in Q1 2009 increased by 46,7% (from 687 to 1008) and Quarterly Labour Force Survey indicated that a total of 208 000 South Africans lost their jobs between Q1 2009 and Q1 2008

    • Maintaining high levels of public investment in infrastructure to support private and public job preservation and creation

    • Deploying macroeconomic policies in combination and aggressively, where required, to address the economic crisis
