SA REMAINS AFRICA’S TOP PICK FOR FOREIGN INVESTORS

SA is still the most attractive financial market for international investors in Africa, according to the Absa Africa financial markets index.

The country remained in the top position for the second year running with a score of 93 out of 100, supported by strong financial market infrastructure and a robust legal framework.

Despite this, the report warns that SA’s macroeconomic performance deteriorated in the past year as it plunged into recession for the first time since the global financial crisis, exposing SA to “rising financial risks”.

Wikipedia is ending zero-cost data access

Wikipedia has announced the Wikipedia Zero program will end this year, effectively ending zero-cost data access to its service. Well, for the time being at least.

Wikipedia Zero was launched back in 2012 in order to enable users in regions with high data costs to access the service for free. Essentially it was a partnership between Wikipedia and mobile carrier providers, in which the latter waived costs for access to Wikipedia on mobile devices.

In a blog post, Wikipedia has announced that it will form no new carrier partnerships and will also allow existing alliances to expire. Apparently since 2016 Wikipedia has seen a significant drop in interest for the program and [...]
