Yeah, its looking good, although foreign investment is for some reason trickling and not what it should or could be. Government is actually doing great work in creating a great investment environment. However, western countries dont seem to trust Africa much. Asia (notably China, India, persian states) is more increasingly aiding in Africa's development.
Anyways, we are preparing for the 2010 soccer world cup, and construction of venues, roads and other infrastructure will be in full swing soon.

South Africa is really booming presently but Western media only want to show bad things about Africa, but in 2007 (due to IWF and Worldbank figures) South Africa큦 economy will be bigger than that of countries such as:
- Greece
- Denmark
- Argentina
- UAE
- Finland
- Ireland
- Iran

...and the four well performing Asian tigers Thailand, Singapore, Hongo Kong and Malaysia

Ummm you are cracking me up.

South Africa is not like half a continent. It's a country.

You're thinking of Southern Africa, which is a REGION of numerous other countries. Like East Africa, or Northern Africa, or Eastern Asia, or Eastern Europe.

Honestly, get educated about stuff before you post about it.
