Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba says Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa is capable of selling the country to investors.

Gigaba was addressing a breakfast meeting in Sandton in the north of Johannesburg ahead of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Ramaphosa will lead a South African delegation to the forum which will take place from January 23-26.

Gigaba says Ramaphosa has the ability to stimulate the economy and in turn create the much-needed jobs and alleviate poverty.

“A lot of people (internationally) would want interact with him to hear you and to hear your plans for the future and to get a reassurance that SA is one for business. Top most in the agenda of this country is the creating of jobs and to demonstrate how it intends to seize on the opportunities presented by the positive economic outlook globally, so that our own economy grows faster and bigger as well as inclusive,” says Gigaba.

Earlier, Ramaphosa had said that government wants to see policy certainty on all platforms.

“We want to work together with the private sector, labour, community-based organisations as government to infuse that certainty. Our most important task right now is to address the challenge of jobs, inequality and poverty and we will be able to address all that by getting out economy to recover,” says Ramaphosa.
