There's unity in Team South Africa - Ramaphosa #WEF2017

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa says there is unity in the South African team (business, labour and government) in Davos at the World Economic Forum.

Ramaphosa says together they were able to overcome the turbulence they had experienced and have established a dialogue to work together.

EWN reporter, Stephen Grootes, says Ramaphosa was optimistic.

It was really heart warming to see fellow South Africans meeting here in this far away cold country and talking positive things about our country.

Stephen Grootes, EWN

He says the sectors were able to come together to talk about issues such as youth unemployment and have made a decision to employ one million young people.

This is what is is good about our country - that we were able to get together to employ one million youths, which is going to start this year.
