South Africa will host its second South Africa Investment Conference from 5 to 7 November 2019. The Investment Conference will provide a platform to showcase new investment opportunities in the country.
The conference will build on the successes of the inaugural Investment Conference held last year. It received nearly R290 billion in investment commitments from companies in mining, forestry, manufacturing, telecommunications, transport, energy, agro-processing, consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, infrastructure, financial services, energy and ICT.
The inaugural Investment Conference had set a new narrative on investment in the country. It sent a clear message to the international community that there is an overwhelming move towards positive change and South Africa is open for business.
South Africa aims to attract R1.2 trillion in new investments over five years. The annual investment gathering are part of a suite of measures to help the country realise its investment goals.
President Cyril Ramaphosa has also despatched four special envoys to engage both domestic and foreign investors. These envoys will take our investment story, which includes new opportunities in the green economy, oil and gas, shipbuilding, oceans economy and renewable energy to global investors.
The second Investment Conference is a platform to unlock investment opportunities for both domestic and international businesses. Investors will have the opportunity to engage with government, and business leaders on the prospects of investing in South Africa.
