The Urban Investments Partnership Conference, co-hosted by the Departments of Cooperative Governance and the Department of Finance was held today at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, Johannesburg.

The Reserve Bank has kept the repo rate unchanged at 5.75% per annum.

Warren Schultze, CEO of Eris Property Group (Pty) Ltd, recently appeared on CNBC Africa discussing the opportunities available to investors in Africa and Eris involvement with Momentum in launching an African Real Estate Fund focused on Sub-Saharan Africa.

The half point increase in the repo rate announced by the Reserve Bank on Wednesday (29 January 2014) certainly sent a shock wave through markets.

Details on government's planned infrastructure development, South Africa's credit rating and growth forecast are some of the issues business hopes to gain clarity on when Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan tables the 2012 Medium-Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS) tomorrow.

Construction makes stellar performance

A slowdown in GDP growth by the largest economic sectors in the first quarter of 2007 has been partly compensated for by a stellar performance from the construction sector said an analyst. 

Construction Industry"While the manufacturing, wholesale and retail, and finance and business services sectors had a combined contribution of 3.6% to Q4 2006's GDP growth, this share dwindled to 2.6% in Q1 2007, but some of this shortfall in growth was compensated for in turn by the improved performance of the construction, trade and transport, and general government sectors," said the analyst.

"The construction sector in particular experienced stellar growth over the quarter, growing quarter-on-quarter (q/q) by 21.3%, even accounting for the upwardly revised output figures of the previous two quarters," said the analyst.

"Such is the growth of the sector that some industry analysts are predicting a doubling in the sector's size by 2013, bringing with it increased investment and employment creation," concluded the analyst.
