    Between andthe government largely abolished a heavy-handed system in which anyone wanting to set up a business needed to struggle through months, if not years, of red tape to get a license; it slashed tariffs from a maximum of percent to 50 percent; it ended government monopolies in electric power, telecommunications, and aviation; and it welcomed foreign investment for the first time in fifty years. Consequently, South Africa will not be indifferent to the rights of others.

South Africa's visible exports to the rest of the region exceed imports by more than five to one.

    Even in the societies of the emerging powers, class conflicts are gaining momentum. The South African market demand increasingly reflects the sophistication of First World markets and the local clothing and textile industry has grown accordingly to offer the full range of services — from natural and synthetic fibre production to non-wovens, spinning, weaving, tufting, knitting, dyeing and finishing. As part of this process we are currently examining a number of options in regard to our future economic relations with the EC with a view to gaining preferential access to European markets. Some of this is positive.

Will 2, steps a day suffice for African city-dwellers? There cannot be one system for Africa and another for the rest of the world. If China is able to link its vast economy further into the global network of trade and finance, world commerce could expand significantly. Human rights will be the light that guides our foreign affairs. Neighboring countries, too, could benefit by expanding their exports to South Africa.
