The HSRC in partnership with George Washington University is launching a set of policy and research briefs to highlight current research conclusions to the widest set of stakeholders.

You are invited to the launch of the research brief South African Crude Oil Import portfolio Risks: which way out? at the HSRC’s offices.

This policy brief  explores the nature of South Africa’s oil-import portfolio risks and the impact on oil prices. It also looks at potential government diversification strategies to reduce the risks and the impact of these strategies on South Africa’s oil-import diversification policy. The Brief is based on research which was done collaboratively with the Financial and Fiscal Commission of South Africa.
