Minister of Trade and Industry Rob Davies is currently in the United Kingdom, on a mission to lure investment to South Africa.
The two-day visit follows on from Davies’ participation at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and will see him meet with analysts from banks and firms around London.
“The visit is intended to engage the UK government on Brexit transaction, showcase opportunities for investment in some of South Africa’s priority sectors, including Business Process Services and renewable energy, as well as to engage those importing agricultural produce from South Africa,” says Davies.
Davies hopes to reinforce the message that South Africa is “open for business”, while simultaneously getting assurances for UK/SA trade in the face of an impending Brexit.
The Minister will wrap up his trip with several other business meetings, culminating in talks with UK’s Secretary for International Trade, Liam Fox.
