The Premier, Dr Zamani Saul, on behalf of the Northern Cape Provincial Government, together with the Deputy Minister of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, Mr Alvin Botes, will tomorrow host an investment seminar which will be held under the theme; Building the blocks with our partners for economic Transformation and inclusion based on partnerships and regional cooperation.
Among the participants of this seminar are foreign diplomats affiliated with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
This seminar, which is a first for the Country, will, amongst others, be used as a platform to encourage the Provincial Government, the business community, municipalities, academics, students and civil society organizations to seize the opportunities created by this relationship with Asian Nations to attract investments.
