This is part of Ramaphosa’s official visit to the People’s Republic of China which started yesterday.

In a statement Rampahosa’s office states that bilateral discussions will take place within the framework of the Five-to-Ten Year Strategic Programme, which was signed by President Jacob Zuma during his state visit to the People’s Republic of China in December 2014.

Rampahosa Spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa said the thrust of Deputy President Ramaphosa’s visit to the People’s Republic of China is on economic and trade matters with specific reference on how state-owned enterprises can be utilised to promote economic growth while addressing challenges of poverty and unemployment.
