At the multilateral level, France contributes 12% (with $55.7 million between 2014 and 2016) to the credits of the global fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria dedicated to South Africa ($464.8 million).
With a trade surplus of around €1 billion for France, South Africa constitutes a major partner. Although France’s market share is on a downward trend, it is still significant, at 2.3% of the market, and the country is South Africa’s 4th largest European supplier.
The bilateral relationship also benefits from the presence of more than 300 French companies, including 29 CAC40 companies, which cover almost all industrial and service sectors and fully respect the local rules imposed by the authorities on local presence (e.g. 65% in the transport sector) and positive discrimination (employment, training). In this respect, companies contribute actively to the industrialization of the country, which allows South Africa to progressively increase its level despite structural constraints that remain strong (starting with a weak education system).
