Published: 02 Feb 18
Investors are always searching for better opportunities, and Africa, with its vast mineral resources, offers an appealing environment. The continent hosts more than 60 metal and mineral products and has much potential with regard to mineral reserves exploration and production. Mining projects, when well managed, also offer opportunities to transform Africa’s resource wealth into sustainable development in many of its countries countries. This edition of Creamer Media’s Africa Mining Projects in Progress highlights some of the prospective projects on the continent that have been announced focusing on recent preliminary economic assessments, scoping, prefeasibility and definitive/bankable feasibility studies, as well as some of the projects that are already under way.
Defence 2017: A review of South Africa's defence sector Defence 2017: A review of South Africa's defence sector Has PDF
Published: 14 Dec 17
Following the passing of the Defence Review by Parliament in June 2015, the South African government has continued to espouse its commitment to supporting the local defence industry, with the establishment of the South African National Defence Industry Council in March 2016. Through the Defence Review, government has recognised the importance of the industry in stimulating high-technology development, manufacturing activities and job creation. It has, moreover, indicated its intent to harness the potential of the industry to ensure that the South African National Defence Force is adequately equipped and trained to conduct its duties. However, despite explicit governmental recognition of the importance of the sector, low levels of domestic spending continues to be a key challenge for defence companies. Creamer Media’s Defence 2017 report examines key developments in South Africa’s defence industry, with particular focus on key participants, innovations in the sector, local and export demand, international collaboration and corporate activities, and the outlook for the country’s defence industry in light of current levels of local defence spending.

Australia Mining Projects in Progress 2017 Australia Mining Projects in Progress 2017 Has PDF
Published: 21 Nov 17
Mining has been the driving force behind much exploration in Australia’s remote inland and its industrial development – from the gold rush in the nineteenth century, and the iron-ore and nickel booms of the 1960s to the later expansion of the coal industry. Mining comprises about 10% of Australia’s gross domestic product. Currently, the Australian mining industry is on the verge of a new mining boom, based on so-called tech metals. However, Australia's mining sector is awash in red tape, with overlapping legislation and replication between state and federal governments creating significant obstacles to the industry’s development. Mining companies prospecting, investing and pursuing new mining opportunities spend a considerable amount of time and money dealing with bureaucracy – eliminating this in mining, particularly the project approval process, is, therefore, crucial to take the growth and prosperity of Australia’s mining sector forward.

Published: 03 Nov 17
The global telecommunications market has undergone considerable change in the past few years, with a shift in the importance of various services – from fixed, wired networks to mobile networks, and from voice services to data services.

Creamer Media’s Telecoms 2017 report reviews South Africa’s telecommunications market and the major companies operating in the sector. The report provides information on the country’s voice and data communications, network investments, international connectivity and corporate activity in the sector.

South Africa’s project economy continues to tick over, albeit at an uninspiring pace. Some State-owned enterprises, such as Transnet, have confirmed a significant pull-back in investment plans, while private fixed investment remains under pressure as a result of weak economic growth and ongoing policy uncertainty, particularly in the mining industry. Nevertheless, Creamer Media’s second Projects in Progress supplement for this year includes valuable updates on and insights into some of the largest fixed investment programmes under way in South Africa.
Liquid Fuels 2017: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Liquid Fuels 2017: A review of South Africa's liquid fuels sector Has PDF
Published: 15 Sep 17
According to the South African Petroleum Industry Association, about 20% of the country’s fuel needs are being met by refined product imports. These are expected to continue to increase, unless significant investments are made in the country’s six refineries. Some have argued that South Africa should take advantage of the global glut of liquid fuel refining capacity and rely increasingly on fuel imports. Government contends, however, that importing fuel is not positive – neither in respect of energy security nor for the enhancement of industrialisation. It also believes that a high level of refined fuel imports exposes South Africa to foreign exchange fluctuations and could place energy security at risk. Thus, much uncertainty remains in the domestic upstream and downstream oil and gas sectors.
