President Cyril Ramaphosa will address a Team South Africa pre-World Economic Forum (WEF) breakfast meeting in Johannesburg on Wednesday, a communique from the department of government communication and information said.

Team South Africa comprises a diversity of stakeholders in the South African society and economy and will participate in the WEF Davos Annual Meetings in Switzerland from 22 to 26 January 2019.

The communique issued late Monday said the 2019 theme for this international gathering is “Globalization 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”

It also said the pre-WEF breakfast was an opportunity for Team South Africa to develop an integrated approach to the country’s input into the WEF deliberations and to identify areas of emphasis in presenting it as a desired investment destination and trade partner.

“The Davos delegation led by Ramaphosa will be coordinated by Finance Minister Tito Mboweni and will include leadership of government, business and labour,” said the communique.

“The SA government will be represented by the ministers of international relations and cooperation; economic development; trade & industry; public enterprises; health; energy, and communications.”
