South Africa continues to be an attractive market for U.S. businesses, importing nearly $5 billion of U.S. goods in 2016. Sophisticated financial, legal, and business services coupled with excellent transportation infrastructure make South Africa an appealing market. U.S. branded goods enjoy a strong reputation, and South Africa is often considered a gateway to other sub-Saharan markets.
