Zuma on walkabout at WEF Africa

May 05 2017 15:11

Durban – President Jacob Zuma was in high spirits on the last day of the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Africa, as he did a walkabout admiring some of the work of designers from South Africa and other parts of the continent.

Zuma paid a visit to the Durban exhibition centre where African designers were exhibiting wares such as clothing and jewellery. The president spoke at length to designers, asking them about the type of material they used and enquiring about the health of their businesses.

Zuma and a number of Cabinet ministers, including Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba and Small Business Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu, had a strong presence at the three-day deliberations on the future of Africa and how the continent can bring about inclusive growth.

At an impromptu media briefing on Wednesday, when the forum started, Zuma said Africa and South Africa are open for business as was evident by the “unprecedented attendance” of this year’s African leg of the WEF.
