According to Business Process Enabling South Africa (BPESA), a non-profit organisation responsible for promoting South Africa as a services delivery destination, there has never been a better time than now for South Africa to secure sizeable and scalable business services projects and for the tech sector particularly to create meaningful employment opportunities. According to BPESA CEO Andy Searle, the country has seen a 22 percent annual increase in international business services (GBS) projects over the past four years. Various private and state sponsored youth training initiatives along with economic shifts have favourably positioned the country as a global destination for outsourced projects.
