With regard both to regulatory law and to commercial practice, South Africa's first-world economy has much in common with those of North America, Europe and Australasia. Free enterprise is the norm, although there are a number of important economic sectors (such as transport, power and water) that have been or continue to be state-owned and controlled. South African entrepreneurs are generally highly educated, skilled and competitive, pursuing profit and growth as a matter of course.
