South Africa’s message to the world from Davos

The World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting took place from 17-20 January 2017 under the theme “Responsive and Responsible Leadership”, with South Africa participating with a strong delegation under the leadership of Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa. Here are the two elements at the heart of South Africa’s global message from the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting: the country has a stable economy and is an attractive investment destination.

Speaking to the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said the WEF theme was important to ensure societies became more inclusive. Team South Africa, he said, would show that the country was a desirable investment destination.

“Responsive and responsible leadership is fascinating both for us, the globe, whichever sector you come from and what is responsible leadership as they see it; it is about integrity and about understanding the environment in a holistic way so that you become part of a co-ordinated effort that they refer to,” Gordhan said.
