Abstract

This paper analyse the changing business environment that faced the South Afri-can agribusiness sector during the first decade of the 2000 millennium – before the “big economic meltdown” period. The analysis focuses on competitive performance and is conducted through measures such as “Relative Trade Advantage”, the “Porter Diamond” analysis and the participation of executives and agribusiness leaders in an “Executive Survey”. The study shows that the business environment for the sector is constrained, marginally positive but with an increasingly negative trend since 2004.
