Ramaphosa, who finished a state visit to Saudi Arabia over the weekend, stated that he was able to further earlier negotiations on investment and partnership during his stay.

“Having begun 2018 with a commitment by Saudi Arabia to invest $10 billion into the South African economy was, in many ways, sowing the seed, and that seed has germinated, with a business named ACWA Power investing $1 billion in South Africa to date,” Ramaphosa added.
