African economies kept up the pace during the first half of

2010 and expectations for the second half remain positive on

the whole. Nevertheless, recent data suggest that economic

growth in the continent is moderating in line with the world

economic trend.




In South Africa, industrial activity maintained the

momentum, as physical manufacturing/ production,

seasonally adjusted, increased by 0.4% in August 2010

compared with the previous month and by 7.8% compared

with August 2009.
