Abstract:In spite of the professed U.S. support for a United Nations arms embargo against South Africa, General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, and Kaiser Jeep have been helping to build up South Africa's military potential. General Motors, Ford and Chrysler rank in the top 200 companies in South Africa and each has made tremendous strides towards production of an 'all South African' vehicle. In addition to the internal growth factor, the auto and its supportive industries help South Africa's balance of payments problems as exports to the rest of the world. This article presents facts and figures on the South African motor industry. Notes, table, graph.
