Mixed Signals to Trade Environment


According to the August 2016 SACCI trade survey, the Trade Activity Index (TAI) improved after the index contracted into negative terrain in June and July 2016. The TAI registered 49 in August 2016 compared to 44 in July 2016 while the seasonally adjusted TAI measured 52 – up from 47 in July 2016. The seasonally adjusted TAI was 3 points higher in August 2016 than the 49 of a year ago. Respondents cited political instability, low economic prospects, volatility of the currency, seasonal factors, and regulatory compliance costs as impeding the trade conditions. The successful completion of the local government elections and a return to normal business activity after the hectic election process were positive experiences. Lower profit margins and an unsatisfactory return on investment are consequences of the tight trade environment.

Tight and Subdued Trade Conditions


After trade conditions pulled back into negative territory in June 2016, the monthly SACCI Trade Activity Index (TAI) survey contracted further into negative space. The TAI registered 44 in July 2016 while the seasonally adjusted TAI measured 47 – down from 51 in June 2016. The seasonally adjusted TAI was 1 point lower in July 2016 than the 48 in July 2015. Respondents cited the decline in economic activity, the predicament of notably small- and medium-sized businesses, the influence of trade unions, and a non-committal approach by government to pro-business policies. The strain led to muted return on assets, and sharp declines in profit margins as consequences of the tight trade environment.
