JOHANNESBURG – South Africans will know on Tuesday whether the country has emerged from a technical recession.

Stats South Africa is set to announce the country’s third quarter GDP figure.

WATCH: What the recession technically means

The country suffered two successive quarters of negative growth.

Economist Azar Jammine says the agricultural sector has been affecting the overall picture.

“Clearly even if there’s been no growth in agriculture, this will stand as a huge improvement on the minus 29% growth we recorded in the second quarter.”
