Port Elizabeth - President Cyril Ramaphosa has arrived in Osaka, Japan, ahead of the annual G20 Leaders' Summit taking place from 28 to 29 June 2019, the Presidency said in a statement on Thursday.
Ramaphosa joins other G20 world leaders to deliberate key themes spanning the global economy, trade and investment, innovation, environment and energy, employment, women’s empowerment, development and health, the statement said.
It said that the themes mirror South Africa's focus areas as outlined in Ramaphosa's State of the Nation Address last week Thursday.
South Africa’s international relations policy is directed at creating a better South Africa through contributing to a better Africa and a better world.
"South Africa will leverage on the summit as a platform for securing financial and other support for infrastructure development; advancing the G20 Compact with Africa initiative and reinforcing the need for strong, sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth at a national and global level," the statement said.
