President Jacob Zuma has arrived in Ivory Coast for the 5th AU-EU summit, which starts in that country’s commercial capital Abidjan on Wednesday morning.
He’s expected to seek more investment in South Africa to create jobs as the country struggles with poor economic growth and ratings downgrades.
South Africa’s representative for Global Governance and Continental Agenda, Mxolisi Nkosi, says the meeting is a good platform to turn the country’s economic fortunes around.
Meanwhile, African leaders have vowed to push for a redefined model of partnership between the continent and European countries.
The summit seeks to strengthen political and economic relations between 54 African countries and their 28 European Union counterparts.
