The outlook for 2016 and 2017 is uncertain and economic activity will likely remain subdued. Expected increases in electricity supply from investments in generating capacity should raise supply only by 2017, easing constraints that have hindered production and increasing investor confidence. Also, strengthening growth in major trade partners, such as Europe and the United States, should reinforce export growth. Inflation is hovering around the upper end of the target band, driven by the depreciation of the rand and higher electricity and food prices.
