QUESTION NO: 63
IN INTERNAL QUESTION PAPER NO 17 OF 31 MAY 2005
Mr W J Seremane (DA) to
ask the Minister of Foreign Affairs:
Whether a Zimbabwean economic collapse
will have any direct impact on the South African economy; if not, (a) why not
and (b) what factors did she take into consideration in reaching this conclusion;
if so, what are the relevant details?
if it collapses, which is not the case now, it will have an impact on the South
African economy. However, it must be noted that, the fact that Zimbabwe's economy
is shrinking does not mean that it is collapsing.
