In light of the Investment Summit recently held at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, Nompu Siziba asks if it will make a difference to the future of South Africa.
President Cyril Ramaphosa in October dared to declare that the investment strike was now over; this after some R290 billion worth of money was pledged by a number of businesses, both local and international, over the next three to five years. Investments are set to be made in a number of sectors – including food, energy, the auto sector, banking, mining and more.
There appeared to be a really positive vibe at the Sandton Convention Centre, with the promise of some decent job creation as a result. But now the announcement has been done and the party is over, so to speak, can the investment summit make all the difference?
Nompu Siziba was joined by GM of Brand SA, Petrus de Kock, who thinks at least one thing the Summit illustrates is the huge capability in the South African market to unlock opportunities; with so many sectors involved, and both local and international companies.
