South Africa is moving ahead with the hosting of its third investment conference. It will hold between 17 and 18 November 2020, as the country focuses on reconstruction as it wades through the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the minister in the Presidency, Jackson Mthembu, this year’s South African Investment Conference will focus on the delivery of existing commitments to realise job creation and economic development.
He added that, “In addition, government will highlight actions taken to foster a conducive investment environment, with a focus on economic reconstruction and recovery,” Mthembu told the media, during a briefing on the outcomes of the Cabinet meeting held on Wednesday.
The Minister said the conference aims to build on the successes of the last two conferences, which raised R664 billion, laying the foundation for investment and accelerated economic growth.
The 2020 conference programme will profile the strengths and comparative advantages South Africa offers investors and trade partners in a period of growing African integration through the African Continental Free Trade Area.
