PRESIDENT ASSURES INVESTORS SOUTH AFRICA WILL ADDRESS ALL POLICY UNCERTAINTIES

JOHANNESBURG– President Cyril Ramaphosa has assured potential investors that his government is determined to address all outstanding policy uncertainties, such as the Mining Charter, as soon as possible.

Delivering the keynote address at the Japan-Africa Public-Private Economic Forum in Johannesburg Thursday which is focusing on the need for collaboration between governments and private sector, among other subjects, Ramaphosa assured investors that the Mining Charter would soon be finalised.

He also urged Japanese companies to contribute to the country’s ambitious global investment target over the next five years.

As I stand here I can see a number of you, who are going to contribute to this 100 billion US dollars. I can see you sir, I can see you sir, I can see you sir and in your face I can see that you’re raring to go and I thank you in advance.

The Japan-Africa Public-Private Economic Forum opened at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg earlier Thursday.

The gathering, the first of its kind in South Africa, is being attended by a number of African and Japanese Cabinet ministers, chief executive officers and business people discussing healthcare, technology, infrastructure and more.

The aim of the conference is to bring together the world’s third largest economy with Africa to try and develop businesses together.
