World Bank sees microgrids playing bigger role in Africa's electrification as solar costs fall

Wednesday 18th April 2018

Changes in generation technologies, including the sharp fall in solar photovoltaic (PV) costs, means that the evolution of electricity systems in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) will need to involve more than one national grid, a new World Bank report argues.

UK, SA Trade Ministers hold talks in London

Wednesday 18th April 2018

South African Trade and Industry Minister Dr Rob Davies met with his British counterpart, International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox, on Tuesday on the margins of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London, to discuss the bilateral trade relationship. They both expressed pleasure at the strength of the trade and investment relationship between the two countries. "The UK is South Africa's 2nd largest trading partner in the EU [European Union] region," pointed out Davies. "Our goods exports to the UK in 2014 were R37.6-billion and increased to R46.3-billion in 2017. Noteworthy is the positive trade balance that South Africa continues to enjoy in its trade with the UK, which earns the country foreign currency and contributes to reducing the country's current account deficit. The key priority for South Africa is to change the structure of our trade to more value added products." "Free trade has transformed developing economies across the world, and 44 of our 52 Commonwealth partners, including South Africa, benefit from development-focused preferential trade access to the UK market," affirmed Fox. "That's why it's important to ensure continuity and certainty in our current trade arrangements as we leave the EU, and UK officials with their counterparts across Southern Africa have made excellent progress in this." view more
