President Cyril Ramaphosa to attend the Goldman Sachs Conference for Investors
President Cyril Ramaphosa will, tomorrow, 15 May 2019, attend and participate in an investor conference in Johannesburg hosted by the Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.
Goldman Sachs is a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm that provides a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments and individuals.
The conference at the Four Season Hotel, Westcliffe, will bring together chief executive officers, chief information officers, chief financial officers and chairpersons of leading companies and financial institutions across all industry sectors from South Africa and other parts of the continent.
The Goldman Sachs conference follows South Africa’s successful hosting of an investment conference in October 2018 where South African and international firms made a broad range of pledges to establish or expand operations in South Africa.
President Ramaphosa announced in the 2019 State of the Nation Address that a second conference will be convened later in 2018.
President Ramaphosa has welcomed the Goldman Sachs platform as a welcome precursor to the second investment conference.
President Ramaphosa will once again highlight government’s commitment to and plans for achieving inclusive growth that will benefit all stakeholders in the South African economy.
