OVERVIEW

The Investment conference will provide a platform to showcase growth and investment prospects in an economy with vast potential and enormous resources. Investors will have the opportunity to hear from – and engage with – government representatives on its progress towards political and economic renewal, strengthening the credibility of public institutions and unlocking the latent potential and innovative spirit of South Africa’s economy.

South Africa is open for business and the most diversified African economy, with a host of unique comparative advantages and unique features as an investment destination and trade partner. This conference will present domestic and international businesses with a portfolio of investment projects in several sectors.  The Investment Conference is also a platform for information exchanges between government, local and international businesses on the country’s most exciting investment opportunities.

About the conference

The inaugural South Africa Investment Conference marks a step change in the government’s approach to engaging with the domestic and international business community.

Rather than being a talk shop, the conference serves as a platform for:
• Announcing bold reforms to improve the ease of doing business
• Highlighting future growth opportunities in South Africa
• Showcasing bankable projects that companies can consider for investment
• Confidentially discussing companies’ investment plans through 1-on-1 meetings

Delegates will also be able to meet representatives from InvestSA – the entity responsible for providing investor information, facilitation and post-establishment aftercare services.
