Ray Hartley: “South Africa May be Ignoring the Potential of a Stronger Relationship with Latin America”

How to Fix South Africa“In the rush to build relationships with rising industrial powers China and India, South Africa may be ignoring the potential of a stronger relationship with Latin America,” Ray Hartley writes in a column for Business Day.

Hartley discusses a recent think-tank, held by the Brenthurst Foundation, where former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo, former Spanish prime minister Jose Maria Aznar and former Costa Rican president Miguel Angel Rodriguez discussed how the two continents could start working together.

In the rush to build relationships with rising industrial powers China and India, South Africa may be ignoring the potential of a stronger relationship with Latin America.

For one thing, many of the countries on the two continents share a similar historical trajectory: colonisation followed by fraught decades of independence during which coups and poor economic choices led to economic stagnation and greater poverty.
