The Contributions Of Manufacturing And Services To Employment Creation And Growth In South Africa
AbstractThis study examines the linkages between the manufacturing and services sectors, and between each of them and the rest of the domestic economy, based on analysis of input-output tables and employment trends. This reveals that manufacturing is particularly important as a source of demand for the services sector as well as the rest of the economy through its strong backward linkages, which suggests that in this respect a decline in manufacturing could negatively affect future growth. Services are especially important in terms of employment creation, both direct and indirect. Copyright (c) 2008 The Author. Journal compilation (c) 2008 Economic Society of South Africa.
