ECWC addresses their concerns to President Ramaphosa.
“Good morning Mr President
On behalf of the Exporters, and SMME’s of the Western Cape, we cannot condone what is happening in our beautiful country currently.
We need to speak out and address those who are trying to de-stabilise our economy, bring them to book – justice must prevail, not lawlessness
Last week you were able to bring billion of Rands of FDI into our country, however, which Global Investor would want to invest in a country where lawlessness prevails?
I say this with the greatest respect, this current situation is untenable, unsustainable and a threat to our young democracy.
As Chairman of Exporters Club, I have been invited to address the 2021 Investing in Africa Conference (www.afsic.net) in London, on 05 – 07 May 2021, a conference that can pull in billions of GBP/EUR of investment into Africa.
This will be a golden opportunity for our country and continent to shine, in particular with the implementation of AfCFTA Agreement on 01 January 2021.
Let’s bring those to book and show the Financial World that we are serious about growing our economy and our country, by creating employment – exports being a great enabler in this regard
The time to act to stop this aggression is now – show your mettle, prove to us that you are THE President of South Africa, of which we can be proud!
I thank you.
OBO All concerned Citizens
