The Investment Conference has provided a platform to showcase growth and investment prospects in an economy with vast potential and enormous resources. This opportunity was used to engage with investors and for government to share with investors the progress it is making in its journey towards political and economic renewal, strengthening the credibility of public institutions and unlocking the latent potential and innovative spirit of South Africa’s economy.
The Conference sent a clear message to the international community that South Africa is open for business. As the most diversified African economy, with a host of unique comparative advantages as an investment destination and trade partner, the Conference aimed to expose domestic and international business to a unique investment case, and portfolio of investment projects in several sectors.
The Investment Conference 2018 was therefore a platform where information exchange on actual opportunities between government, local- and international business took place. Furthermore, the Conference aims to be a showcase of unique features, strengths, competitiveness, and attractiveness of South Africa as investment destination and trade partner.
