Abstract | Full Text

Economic co-operation between countries in Southern Africa is essential. In the past the Republic of South Africa has participated ,in various projects ,involving neighbouring countries. In this way economic growth was promoted in those countries which were willing to co-operate whilst South Africa herself expected to der,ive benefit from the different schemes. This was the case with the Cunene and Cabora Bassa Sohemes which were launched by the South African and Portugeuse Governments in 1962-64 and 1969 respectively. The political situation has changed radically sinnce Angola and Mocambique gained their independence in 1974. Are South Africa and South West Africa going to lose all the expected advantages? How precarious is the f.ituation? The writer sketches the background and tries to give an objective opinion.
