Gold is crucial to South Africa’s exports, representing around five percent of global mining production and about 11 percent of the worlds gold reserves.

In gold prices rose percent, going against typical commodity trends at that time. Diamonds remain a significant part of South Africa’s mining industry. Competitiveness Rank in South Africa is expected to reach by the end ofaccording to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations.

In the long-term, the South Africa Competitiveness Rank is projected to trend around inaccording to our econometric models. The output of South Africa’s capital goods industry has expanded almost consistently in real terms since The industry has exhibited a degree of international competitiveness by the rising trend in its export propensity since however the import penetration ratio has also been rising steeply, amounting to 56 per cent in As South Africa emerges from its Apartheid period, the evolution of its international trade is vital to the growth of the economy.

This paper evaluates South Africa's trade performance in three. The South African mining industry, one of the country’s few world-class industries, has the capacity to continue to generate wealth and employment opportunities on a large scale. Mining is an international business and South Africa has to compete against developed and developing countries to attract both foreign and local investment.

The Diamond Model of Industry Competitiveness developed by Michael Porter was utilised in analysing the mining industry's competitiveness. In the process of the analysis, the model was interrogated for validity in a developing and dynamic country via inference of the analysis of the South African mining industry.

The 12 pillars of competitiveness. We define competitiveness as the set of institutions, policies, and factors that determine the level of productivity of a country.

The level of productivity, in turn, sets the level of prosperity that can be reached by an economy. Ten years on from the global financial crisis, the prospects for a sustained economic recovery remain at risk due to a widespread failure on the part of leaders and policy-makers to put in place reforms necessary to underpin competitiveness and bring about much-needed increases in productivity, according to data from the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report.
