Zuma assures investors and football fans
27 January 2010
President Jacob Zuma has told the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that sound macroeconomic policies, an effective regulatory environment and sustained political and social stability continue to make South Africa a candidate for even greater and faster economic growth.
Zuma says the growth will be underpinned by the Fifa Soccer World Cup.
His message was that South Africa was truly ready for business and for football fans from around the globe.
Zuma also informed the gathering that this year was an important year for the country, because it will be marking the 20th anniversary of the release of former President Nelson Mandela from prison.
He said the decades of the struggle against apartheid by South Africans, supported by Africa and the world, had yielded results.
