unrest. For the time being, the ruling African National Congress (ANC) appears capable of keeping a lid on

these national tensions. However, this cannot be taken for granted in the long term.

South African National Defence Force (SANDF). The government has already revealed defence spending

plans for the next three years which envisage some growth in the defence budget. However, these increases

are not nearly enough to enable the SANDF to meet its procurement and personnel targets, analysts are

    BMI View: US defence spending will likely see healthier growth under the new president relative to the past five years, given that both candidates have indicated they would increase the military budget in campaign statements, and due to the diverse range of security challenges that the country is now facing.

The sector has some technological capabilities for development of small arms and ammunition, armoured transport aircraft and patrol craft and frigates, but infrastructure and research capacity is restricted - the result of years of underinvestment. This will remain the case over much of our forecast period, as ......

    BMI View: Weaker economic growth as a result of the Brexit vote in 2016-2017 will likely force the MoD to revise its plan for a 3.1% real term increase in defence spending out to 2020. Defence expenditure will still remain above the 2% of GDP NATO-stipulated target, amid rising security threats from Russian aggression, terrorism and cybercrime - allowing the Ministry of Defence to move ahead with key procurement programmes.
