Mboweni: "amazing" response to
South Africa's syndicated loan

The situation has been worsened by the rand's collapse late last year, political turmoil in neighbouring Zimbabwe, the ever-worsening Aids disaster, Argentina's meltdown, a domestic banking crisis and the global market downturn.

So it was hardly surprising that South African Reserve Bank officials warmly welcomed the signing of a new $1 billion syndicated loan in July as a strong show of support for the country from the international financial community.
