SA to call for more investment at Davos

CAPE TOWN/SOUTH AFRICA, 10JUN2009 - Jacob Zuma...

South Africa is to use the 2013 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland to call for more investment in the country and to boost the continent’s infrastructural projects.

The annual gathering of the world’s political, economic and business leaders takes place against the backdrop of a sluggish global economic recovery. President Jacob Zuma, who leads the country’s delegation, arrived this morning and will use the platform to promote the country’s vision for 2030, the National Development Plan.

The gloomy weather over the Davos resort is perhaps a reminder of the current difficult global economic condition. Themed, ‘The Resilient Dynamism’, that is what top leaders hope to achieve as they put together their heads to get the global economy back on its feet.

As South Africa tackles its triple challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment, it hopes to use the occasion to lure more investments into the country.
