The International Monetary Fund has revised downwards South Africa’s economic growth projections for the year. Newsflash reports that the country is expected to rebound to 2.8-percent this year, but growth may slow to just 1.4-percent next year. Newsflash reports that the IMF’s Gita Gopinath says the global economy is projected to grow to 5.5-percent this year, a slight upward revision from the previous forecast. She adds that this reflects expectations of a Covid-19 vaccine-powered strengthening of activity later in the year and additional policy support in a few large economies.
