Johannesburg - South Africa's business confidence index
dropped to a three-year low of 95.7 in March from 99.5 in February due to
uncertainty over the local and global economy, the South African Chamber of
Commerce and Industry (Sacci) said on Tuesday.
"The continuing fluctuations in business confidence mirror
an inherent instability and uncertainty in the business environment," Sacci
said in a statement.
"An economic environment that induces and seeks private
fixed investment could help to sustain an improving business outlook."
