An Assessment of South Africa's Investment Incentive Regime with a Focus on the Manufacturing Sector

Working papers

This paper investigates whether South Africa's tax incentives have been effective in generating additional manufacturing investment. South Africa's investment incentive regime compares favourably with international best practice. However, the qualitative and quantitative evidence reviewed supports the hypothesis that the impact on manufacturing investment has been negligible.
