Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa will lead the South African delegation to the 48th World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting from 23 – 26 January in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland.
The meeting will take place under the theme ‘Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World’, and will promote renewed commitment to international collaboration as a way of solving critical global challenges.
The meeting will bring together over 2 500 leaders from business, government, international organisations, civil society, academia and the arts.
The Deputy President led the delegation to the 2017 Davos meeting as well.
The South African delegation will comprise Ministers and business leaders, with the Minister of Finance, Malusi Gigaba, as the lead Minister and coordinator.
President Jacob Zuma has wished the delegation well in the annual meeting, which provides an important platform to market and showcase the country to global business and other key international stakeholders.
