'President Ramaphosa has one message - South Africa is open for investment'

President Cyril Ramaphosa is in the United Kingdom (UK) on a working visit to London to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, which will take place on Thursday and Friday.

His spokesperson Khusela Diko says President Ramaphosa is engaged in a series of discussions and is working together with the envoys he appointed to raise $100 billion dollars over the next five years.

Already there are very strong commitments from, for example, the British government to work with South Africa in terms of raising this investment.
