In his letter to the country last week – From the Desk of the Presidency – our president celebrated the economic investment into South Africa since the first Investment Conference in 2018.
“Through the investments that are now underway, through the work that social partners are doing to expand local production and through the progress we are making on key reforms, we are building a firm foundation for the success of the fourth South Africa Investment Conference next year.
“Most importantly, we are building a firm foundation for a sustained economic recovery that encourages further investment, creating more jobs and providing new opportunities for emerging businesses,” – H.E. Ramaphosa.
It is a busy month for our Public Sector Leaders with the local government elections. The Chief Justice Shortlisting Panel submitted its report to President Ramaphosa and His Excellency attended the the launch of the Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid vehicle.
