Why should you choose office space in South Africa?

As the economic powerhouse of the continent, South Africa is the perfect entry point for businesses looking to reach out to the African market. The country has a wealth of natural resources, alongside a strong and varied workforce.

Founded on an established manufacturing base, South Africa has world-class infrastructure and strong development capabilities. With sophisticated financial, legal and telecommunications sectors, it is becoming a popular choice for a number of global business process outsourcing operations. When compared to other emerging markets, it also offers a competitive overall cost of doing business, making South Africa an attractive option for setting up office space.

Johannesburg is South Africa’s business capital and has the largest economy in Sub-Saharan Africa, while top destinations such as Cape Town and Durban offer businesses the chance to join dynamic, established and emerging markets in some of the most beautiful locations in the world. 

With the biggest stock exchange in Africa, ranking among the largest in the world, South Africa’s economy is among the very strongest on the continent. It is also one of the most diverse and promising emerging markets globally, acting as a gateway to the rest of Africa for both local and foreign businesses.

As South Africa’s business capital, Johannesburg’s rental rate remains stable despite an increasing demand for flexible office space. A decline in the country’s GDP growth has meant that many businesses in Johannesburg are looking to reduce costs by switching to serviced office spaces. With this in mind, the Bryanston and Fourways areas have become increasingly popular as both offer low-cost options for businesses. 

Traditionally home to more conventional workspace, cities such as Cape Town are also starting to develop more coworking and flexible office space in areas such as Woodstock and the CBD, in order to accommodate the evolving business scene. While competition for office space in Cape Town is high, as both local and foreign business owners look to set up in the city, there is still a wide range of office space available to fulfill a variety of requirements.
