SOUTH AFRICA’S DEBT TRAJECTORY TOO HIGH, NO BUFFERS FOR GLOBAL CRISIS: CENTRAL BANK

CAPE TOWN (Reuters) – South Africa’s rising debt trajectory will make it difficult to weather a significant global economic downturn, the central bank deputy governor said, adding it would take at least a decade to bring the debt-to-GDP ratio down to the 30 to 40 percent range.

Deputy governor Kuben Naidoo also said on Wednesday that growth in Africa’s most industrialized economy was seen hovering around the 2 percent over the next few years.
