SA calls for Commonwealth investment
paid a courtesy call to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, held a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May, and participated in a number of executive and retreat sessions.
The queen presented President Ramaphosa with a framed letter, which was written by Nelson Mandela to the queen in 1994, when South Africa was readmitted to the Commonwealth. This year South Africa marks the centenary of the late struggle icon, who would have turned 100 on 18 July 2018.
Commonwealth countries represent 2.4 billion citizens and have historical trade and investment ties, similar legal systems and forms of government, and a common language of commerce.
President Ramaphosa also called on the Commonwealth countries to attend the Investment Conference scheduled to take place later this year.
