EWN senior reporter, Stephen Grootes, reporting from the World Economic Forum in Davos says it was interesting to see the optimism in South Africa's delegates.
Grootes spoke to Lesetja Kganyago, Governor of the South African Reserve Bank, who said that this year is better than last year because of the rise in commodity prices around the world.
Kganyago said it is important to note that South Africa's institutions survived 2016.
There was a lot of talk about Brexit as well as Donald Trump, says Grootes.
