Cape Town – President Jacob Zuma will lead the South African delegation which will represent the country at the World Economic Forum in Durban from 3 to 5 May.

In a statement issued by the Presidency on Friday, Zuma said the 27th WEF on Africa has come to South Africa at the right time.

“As a developing constitutional democracy that is defined by the triple challenge of inequality, poverty and employment, South Africa believes that radical economic transformation is imperative to accelerating inclusive growth and eradicate these long standing challenges. Our international partners and investors appreciate this historical need as they know it is key to long term sustainable development for the South African economy.”
