Co-operation between Britain and South Africa
Today saw the launch of the next phase of the UK-South Africa Infrastructure Partnership as we welcome President Ramaphosa’s State Visit, helping to create jobs, boost trade, and spread prosperity in both our nations.
South Africa is already the UK’s biggest trading partner on the continent of Africa, but there is considerable opportunity to benefit both countries if we can turbocharge infrastructure investment and economic growth for the benefit of both our countries.
- That is why today – to mark the start of President Ramaphosa’s State Visit - the UK and South Aftican governments announced the launch of the next phase of the UK-South Africa Infrastructure Partnership, which will support major infrastructure developments in South Africa while offering access to UK companies to projects worth up to £5.37 billion over the next three years.
- This programme will help to create jobs, enhance trade and investment, and boost economic growth in both the UK and South Africa.
