Four years ago Cyril Ramaphosa pledged that he would ensure R1.2 trillion of investment into South Africa by 2023. As of the latest national investment conference, he is 95% of the way there. Amongst the largest was Ford's R16.4-billion investment, African Rainbow Minerals R11-billion investment, Impala Platinum's R11.8-billion investment, and Scatec's R16-billion solar PV and storage project. Foreign investments as such are of massive economic importance to the development of South Africa. I'm glad that investors still have faith in South Africa. It can be hard to be proudly South African at times, but this has given me hope for our nation.
