n Africa Insight - Assessing one-stop-shop best practices for South African investment : a comparative case study of Mauritius and Egypt

Volume 42, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 0256-2804


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 one-stop-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.
