Pretoria - Government has launched a one-stop-shop for investors aimed at improving the ease of doing business in the country.               

This is according to President Jacob Zuma, who was speaking at the launch of Invest South Africa, a division of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) which is part of government’s nine-point development plan. The one-stop-shop (OSS) aims to increase foreign and domestic investment in South Africa and the rest of Africa.

It was first proposed by Zuma in August 2015 in a meeting with the presidential working group. The service will be launched in three provinces, Gauteng, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, said Zuma. It will be rolled out to other provinces in the next three years.
