Recent Kwazulu-Natal Business News

Although the speed and extent of the global economic recovery remains uncertain, commodity prices are likely to put up strong performance in 2010.

This is the forecast from Frost and Sullivan metals and mining analyst Wonder Nyanjowa.

"The global mining industry is likely to be buoyed by growing physical demand for commodities, the strong possibility of speculative buying and rising prices," said
Nyanjowa.

"This is likely to encourage miners to expand production capacity." However, Nyanjowa warned that South
Africa may not reap the full benefits of this rebound.

"Many of the local challenges that adversely impacted on production in 2009, such as electricity supply shortages, a lack of skills and safety concerns, are likely to continue affecting the performance of the mining industry in 2010," he said.

"In addition, the prospect of higher commodity prices, particularly in the gold, platinum and coal sectors, is likely to lead to tough wage demands from unions."
