Assessing One-stop-shop Best Practices for South African Investment: A Comparative Case Study of Mauritius and Egypt

YF April


One stop shop (OSS) models are an investment process that came about to create a centralised place for the voluminous documentation required in international trade between companies. Bureaucracy has proven to be a major barrier to the development of international trade, particularly in African countries that still lag behind in industrial growth and development. South Africa needs to establish a one-stop-shop model for incoming investors soon, particularly since the Department of Trade and Industry submitted a Special Economic Zone Bill last year. The focus of this article is to examine challenges and prospects of onestop-shop models through a case study analysis of Mauritius and Egypt, both of which have implemented such processes with relevant investment experiences that South Africa can draw from.
