Resource nationalism redux: Some recent regulatory trends in Africa

The revival of resource nationalism policies tend to correlate with commodity prices – increasing during both commodity supercycles and commodity downturns. However, the policies of resource nationalism implemented by Tanzania and South Africa in 2017 appear to be exceptions to the general trend as global commodity prices are in neither a supercycle nor a downturn. This suggests that the reforms introduced by the Tanzanian and South African governments were caused by factors other than a pure drive to maximising socio-economic benefits. The legislative measures adopted by Tanzania in July 2017 result from a sense of mistrust between the government and mining companies, and the government’s drive to secure greater benefits for the country. In South Africa, increased resource nationalist measures are seen in Mining Charter III (June 2017) which like its predecessors was published to address the racial inequality created by the country’s Apartheid past.
