This policy insights paper examines South Africa’s proposed law on the promotion and protection of investment, and highlights the differences between this law and SADC’s regional approach as adopted by South Africa.

It illuminates the problematic differences with international investment law and the implications for attracting foreign direct investment (FDI), and discusses South Africa’s considerations in balancing the competing interests of national development objectives and its obligations under international law.
