This engagement by the President forms part of his working visit to Japan, where he arrived on Tuesday to participate in the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development.

President Ramaphosa will use the business engagement to invite global partners to experience South Africa as an investment destination and trade partner, and to participate in the country’s efforts to secure faster, sustainable and inclusive economic growth and reduce South Africa’s unemployment.

More than 140 Japanese companies have an investment footprint in South Africa totalling more than R90 billion.
