President Cyril Ramaphosa has started his two-day visit to London this weekend where he will spend his time attracting investment into the country.
SABC reports that Ramaphosa will be delivering a speech at the Africa Summit in the capital UK city during his trip.
Leaders in industry, business, politics and economics are set to gather to discuss Africa's future.
President Cyril Ramaphosa is travelling to the UK this weekend to try and drum up foreign investment for South Africa.
Before the summit, he will be wining and dining with other speakers due to take part in the event at the famous Claridge hotel. The venue is renowned for its ties to the British Royal family.
But it won't all be glitz and glamour for Ramaphosa, who will turn his attention to issues facing the youth, women, scientist and entrepreneurs.
Briefly.co.za reported that Ramaphosa is not relying solely on western funding to kickstart the flagging economy.
The president recently encouraged citizens looking to invest to drive their funding into fellow African nations, saying that SA's future lies in Africa, with Africa.
This comment had come after Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari had visited the country, with economic ties between the two nations strengthened during the trip.
