Programme Suisse de Promotion de l'Importation
Le Programme suisse de promotion des importations (SIPPO) est un mandat bien établi du Secrétariat d'État à l'économie (SECO) dans le cadre de sa coopération au développement économique. Le programme est mis en œuvre par Swisscontact depuis 2017 et est actuellement dans sa phase 2 (2021-2025).

South Africa faces multifaceted development challenges that impact its socio-economic landscape. Persistent issues include high levels of inequality, stemming from historical legacies of apartheid, which have left a significant portion of the population marginalized. Unemployment, particularly among the youth, remains a pressing concern, hindering inclusive growth. Additionally, inadequate access to quality education and healthcare exacerbates social disparities. The country also grapples with governance issues, corruption, and political instability, affecting public trust and hindering effective policy implementation. Environmental concerns, such as water scarcity and climate change, further strain resources. Despite progress, addressing these challenges requires comprehensive and sustained efforts to foster inclusive and sustainable development and create opportunities for all South Africans.
