Abstract

The manufacturing economy of the Free State reflects both historical dependence on locally available raw materials and high-levels of state intervention, in terms of support for import substitution and homeland development. In the contemporary era deindustrialisation, the uncertain future of the clothing/textile industries and limited growth over the last ten years, suggests that in terms of manufacturing, the Free State is a lagging region, although key sector such as petro-chemicals and gold jewellery present certain opportunities for future growth. - (AJC)
