President Cyril Ramaphosa is on Wednesday delivering the keynote address at the inaugural black industrialists and exporters conference in Sandton.

“The conference will highlight how broad-based empowerment enables the growth and job-creation strategy, specifically on the value it adds to the economy,” said presidency spokesperson Vincent Magwenya.

He said it would also showcase the progress of government measures in promoting access and transformation to more black industrialists in the economy and the opportunities offered by the Africa Free Continental Trade Area.     

Ramaphosa has been championing the programme which has empowered more than 800 black industrialists since 2015.
