The economic integration of South Africa (including Namibia) with Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland (hereafter referred to as BLS) which dates back to the end of the 1 9th century, operates at several levels. Of the forms of co-operation mentioned above only the customs union has been institutionalised, and we will limit our discussion of economic regionalism in Southern Africa to an analysis of this customs union, though a few words will be added about the de facto Rand monetary union which, it is generally expected, will be institutionalized in the foreseeable future.
