South Africa offers investment opportunities to Asia Pacific investors

The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and joint sponsors, Citi and Absa Bank collaborate to host the annual SA Tomorrow Investor conference.

HONG KONG, June 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and joint sponsors, Citi and Absa Bank are collaborating to host the annual SA Tomorrow Investor conference, which aims to showcase the country’s array of investment opportunities to investors in the Asia Pacific region, mainly from Hong Kong and Singapore.

“Asia is one of the few regions expected to grow this year, with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasting growth of 7.6% in the broader Asia Pacific region, with China alone expected to grow 8.4%. Our deep and liquid capital markets offer attractive opportunities for Asian investors looking to diversify offshore and gain exposure to Africa’s future growth,” said JSE CEO Leila Fourie.

Prospects abound in other sectors such as financial services, technology, renewable energy, and transport.

The conference will be held virtually from 17 to 18 June 2021. It will bring together institutional investors, CEOs of large listed companies, bankers, investment advisors, policy makers and financial markets regulators to deliberate on ways to unlock new and existing investment opportunities. The South African delegation will include the President of South Africa, his excellency President Cyril Ramaphosa, Finance Minister Tito Mboweni, Reserve Bank Governor Lesetja Kganyago and Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan.

Investors from the United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates will also participate in the conference.

“With the global disruption to markets caused by COVID-19, investment will be vital to accelerate South Africa’s economic recovery. South Africa’s economic potential and investment opportunities are huge, and our partnership will help ensure that international investors and South African businesses are able to capitalise on trade and investment opportunities, now and in the future. I expect the conference will demonstrate what has been achieved, and establish a platform for what can be done, working in collaboration in the future,” says Citi Country Officer, Peter Taylor.

“We are very excited at the opportunity to be involved with this conference that demonstrates to international investors, that South Africa is open for business. As a leading Pan African financial services institution, we always seek to be involved with platforms that seek to build on the great investment opportunities across our continent, that drive economic growth and jobs,” said Absa CIB CEO, Charles Russon.

市場所認爲的極具前景行業中 — 金融服務業、科技界別、可再生能源界別和運輸業等其他領域,解鎖及創造投資機會。除此之外,來自英國和阿拉伯聯合酋長國的投資者亦將會參與高峰會,與亞太地區投者交流心得。

Citi 地區總經理 Peter Taylor 表示:「由於新型冠狀病毒病疫情對全球市場造成的影響,投資對於加速南非地區的經濟復甦攸關重要。南非擁有龐大的經濟潛力和投資機會,我們的合作夥伴關係將有助於確保國際投資者和南非企業隨時隨地都能夠利用貿易和投資機會,積極發展。高峰會將會展示已取得的成就,並建立一個平台,讓各界能夠在未來共同合作,實現不同理念。」

Absa 企業及投資銀行行政總裁 Charles Russon 表示:「我們很高興有機會參與是次高峰會,向國際投資者宣揚一個十分重要的信息 — 南非地區非常歡迎並開放與國際企業合作。作為行業領先的泛非金融服務機構,我們一直積極參與旨在建立整個非洲大陸龐大投資機會的平台,從而推動經濟增長和就業機會。」
