President Cyril Ramaphosa will today commence the second day, 18 April 2018, of his working visit to London by addressing the African Leaders’ Roundtable of the Commonwealth Business Forum.
President Ramaphosa will also engage with senior international investors and business leaders hosted by Bloomberg and attend the Commonwealth Business Forum Heads of Government Roundtable with senior Business leaders hosted by Prime Minister May.
The Roundtable with African Leaders will afford President Ramaphosa an opportunity to drive a message of a need to strengthen partnerships on the continent so as to realise the vision of an integrated Africa that is underpinned by greater levels of intra-Africa trade and even greater levels of intra-Africa investments.
At the Bloomberg Investor Lunch as well as the Heads of Government Roundtable, President Ramaphosa is expected to position South Africa as one of the world’s leading emerging market investment destination and to deliver a message that the South African government is committed to improving the investment climate.
President Ramaphosa is leading a South African delegation at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM 2018) in London, United Kingdom.
The Commonwealth consists of 53 members including: 19 African members, 7 Asian members, 13 members from the Caribbean and the Americas, 3 members from Europe and 11 members from the Pacific and meets every two years to discuss issues affecting both the Commonwealth members and the international community in general.
