The claim to being the 'gateway to Africa' that South Africa has consistently relied upon to attract foreign direct investment is increasingly under threat. The economic growth of our African neighbours has far outpaced that of our own. Now foreign investors are more prepared to set-up shop directly on the continent, bypassing South Africa's role as the middle man. Which is where Brazil and South Africa come face to face on the continent. Brazil's African adventures have naturally begun with Angola and Mozambique.
