South Africa

The South African campaign launched in 2011 and represents a network of 19 organisations, including international development agencies, health groups, environmental movements and public policy think tanks.

Following pressure from these partners, President Zuma announced his support for the Financial Transaction Tax at the G20 Summit in Cannes 2011, joining the African Union, leading EU Member States of France and Germany, and Ban Ki Moon.  This represents a positive first step, and the campaign will be continuing to build support until the FTT gains implementation.
