Using The World Cup as a Springboard

Officials in South Africa are saying that the country needs to use its success hosting the World Cup to continue to make progress as a nation.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup has formed a basis on which real opportunities can be built and the potential it has provided must be expanded, the SA Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Sacci) said on Monday.

"This event has provided a positive impetus to economic trends which may not have otherwise have existed," Sacci said in a statement.
