Abstract
During the leadership of Jacob Zuma South Africa proclaimed foreign policy tasks and principles such as defending the interests of the country on the international arena, expanding trade and economic relations, attracting foreign investments, protecting interests of the states of the African continent and promoting them in international organizations. However, due to economic difficulties and the deepening political crisis, South Africa already lacks the resources to claim leadership on a continental scale, not to mention worldwide. In this regard, recently, the country has been reoriented to leadership in the South African region and weakening efforts to expand its influence on the whole continent. In general, given the instability of the world economy, the lack of lasting unity in the leadership of the ANC, the growth of tensions in society, serious political and social upheavals in the country can not be ruled out. Obviously, in the near future South Africa will focus on solving internal problems and restoring the image of the party, which is likely to negatively affect its status in the world arena. Nevertheless, on a global scale and a long-term perspective, the most likely situation is maintaining the status of a relatively developed and large economy.
