Ramaphosa’s Planned Visit to West Africa to Go Ahead
South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa has embarked on a week-long, four-nation visit to West Africa. He will visit Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Senegal.
The visit, which concludes on 7 December, serves to reinforce South Africa’s bilateral relations with the countries concerned and to strengthen partnerships directed at African development and cooperation in multilateral forums.
During this visit South Africa and the partner states will explore ways to leverage the opportunities presented by the African Continental Free Trade Area for mutual benefit and with greater support for businesses conducting intra-African trade and investment.
President Ramaphosa will be accompanied by a delegation of Ministers and business leaders in view of growing economic relations and people-to-people interaction between South Africa and these West African countries.
