South Africa ranks tops in Africa

South Africa was named Africa's most valued African brand at the fourth BrandFinance Global Nation Brands league at the JSE on Wednesday.

This showed the country's progress and recognised its hosting of the Soccer World Cup and its acceptance into the Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (Brics) group of nations, said International Marketing Council chairperson Anitha Soni.

It was also recognition of South Africa as an important emerging country in its own right.
