STEVEN KUO: A chance for SA to woo Japanese investors
24 AUGUST 2022 - 14:22
The Eighth Tokyo International Conference on African Development - the Japan-Africa Forum - will be held in Tunisia this weekend. The conference will focus on economic development and co-operation in post-coronavirus Africa. About 50 African leaders, including President Cyril Ramaphosa, are expected to attend.

Japan has been quietly going about its business in Africa for decades and seldom makes a fuss. While China makes headlines across Africa, Japan's foreign direct investments on the continent, especially in SA, have been steadfast for many decades. As the contest between China and the US - representing two different models of development - compete for influence in Africa, Japan's participation in the African economy is no less important.

Whatever your views on global affairs, whether you think SAs' reconcile with the West or challenge the global order together with Brics, it is worthwhile for SA's diplomatic and business community to keep abreast of views from Tokyo.
