Abstract : South Africa stands alone, isolated from the world community because of her internal apartheid policies. The basic questions of when and how the Western Bloc will again recognize South Africa as a political ally seems to depend upon economics and the strategic importance of the Indian Ocean during this decade. South Africa is extremely wealthy in raw materials and as the US and Western Europe deplete their own resources, attention must be focused upon South Africa as a source for these materials. The present economy and potential for industrial expansion are examined. Political and economic relationships with Western Europe, US, Japan, and other African nations are discussed in relation to present and future needs. (Modified author abstract)
