African Renaissance Conference  24- 26 May 2018




Some of you are aware that we have worked collectively as the KZN Growth Coalition, the Durban Chamber of Commerce and the African Renaissance, to bring the President of RSA to address the business community and civic leaders in KwaZulu-Natal on the government’s strategy to implement inclusive social economic transformation.  As a collective, we have also worked closely with the KZN Premier, Mr Willies Mchunu, as well as the ANC interim structure as led by Mr Sihle Zikalala and Mr Michael Mabuyakhulu.

We were advised that indeed President Cyril Ramaphosa has accepted our invitation to address the opening session of the upcoming African Renaissance Conference on 24 May 2018 at 09h00 at the ICC Durban.
