In July 2018, China's president Xi pledged $14.7 billion investment on South Africa during his visit that time.

Other agreements included Ramaphosa signing a deal on Tuesday with Chinese banks to lend a combined total of $2.8 billion which will be much needed cash injection to struggling South African state power utility Eskom and logistics company Transnet.
