Marcus: SA growth prospects have weakened


Fin24/ Reuters - Jul 29th, 08:04

Pretoria - South Africa's economic growth prospects have weakened and constraints in electricity supply pose further downside risks, Reserve Bank Governor Gill Marcus said on Friday. 

Inflation was seen remaining within a 3% to 6% target band despite an expected temporary breach in the third quarter of this year, but was "uncomfortably close" to the top of the range, Marcus told the bank's annual general meeting.

"Against the backdrop of a volatile currency responding to domestic and global developments, we can expect a challenging year ahead for monetary policy," she added. From
