KPMG 2023 CEO Outlook: Southern Africa Edition

Treading Positively Amidst Uncertainty


31 October 2023 – KPMG 2023 CEO Outlook: Southern Africa edition

While CEOs remain confident in the future of the global economy, there is a significant consideration for escalating uncertainty and rising global crises - which has forced a reset in strategic thinking, a consolidation of talent, a renewed focus on collaborative approaches as well and an eye on upcoming technology. This is according to the KPMG 2023 CEO Outlook Survey – Southern Africa.

This annual South Africa report, which KPMG compiled in partnership with Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA), draws on the perspectives of 60 CEOs mostly from South Africa, and six other countries, within the Southern Africa region. This follows on the back of the Global KPMG CEO Outlook Survey conducted among 1,325 CEOs across 11 markets which examined how CEOs are looking to tackle this complex set of emerging and converging challenges.
