SAIIA Podcast Episode 5: SAIIA experts discuss the impact that the adoption of international sanctions on Iran’s oil exports will have on South Africa

3 April 2012: SAIIA’s Research Associate, Tom Wheeler, and the former CEO of Old Mutual South Africa, Kuseni Dlamini, join a panel discussion to discuss how sanctions placed on Iranian oil exports will affect South Africa. Dlamini is also a member of SAIIA’s National Council. Iran is one of South Africa’s primary oil suppliers, making up 20% of South Africa’s oil imports.

 

The introduction in December 2011 of US sanctions against any company that does business with Iran’s central bank will take effect in June 2012. The South African government is urgently seeking alternative oil suppliers.

The show, called Classic Business, airs on Johannesburg radio station Classic FM and is hosted by John Fraser. SAIIA would like to thank Classic Business on Classic FM (www.classicfm.co.za)for making this podcast available.
