Look Who Arrived With Ramaphosa At The Presidential Meeting. It Will Leave You In Disbelief. Video


As a result of the recent floods in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa's president, Cyril Ramaphosa, will meet with local business leaders on Sunday to discuss their concerns. The president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, was spotted entering a chamber of commerce conference venue in Durban.

The Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry requested a meeting with the president in order to help him understand the challenges faced by the business community following the devastating floods of April. 45 persons remain unaccounted for.

"While on my trip, I was fortunate enough to see the Mara smartphone factory. Investors at the Dube TradePort investment conference had Ashish Thakkar, the chief executive of Mara Phones, ready to set up shop. The factory where smartphones are manufactured is among the best in the world. The structure is on par with or better than those used to manufacture cellphones. When we opened the factory for the smartphone, we made history. There is no doubt that South Africa is a fantastic area to invest money after the factory opened "Ramaphosa made the statement.

As of now, Mara Phones has 313 employees, but it wants to grow to 1,369 in the next five years.

At the moment, the plant employs 200 former unemployed engineering graduates. Among these, 66% are women and 92% are under the age of 30.

It was also at this event that he met with entrepreneurs from KwaZulu-Natal, who were hosted by the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI).

Problems in the sugar sector and the Durban port were discussed by corporate leaders at the meeting.
