After the global economic crisis of 2008, the Republic of South Africa saw a drop in economic growth to negative 1.7 percent, but saw a recovery to positive 2.8 percent in 2010, when the World Cup of soccer was held there. In 2011, the economic recession in the US and Europe, both primary export destinations for the Republic of South Africa, as well as the effects of a high rand (the currency) caused the export industry to decline. JICA's support to South Africa is primarily focused on: 1) Promotion of Human Capacity Development and Infrastructure Development, 2) Promotion of Participation of vulnerable groups in Social and Economic Activities, and 3) Promotion of Regional Development in Southern Africa.
