South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa has begun a week-long trip to West Africa, visiting four countries. He plans to travel to Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, and Senegal. The visit, which ends on December 7, aims to strengthen South Africa’s bilateral relations with the countries involved as well as partnerships aimed at African development and cooperation in multilateral forums. During this visit, South Africa and the partner countries will look into ways to use the opportunities provided by the African Continental Free Trade Area for mutual benefit, as well as to provide more assistance to businesses conducting intra-African trade and investment. President Ramaphosa will be accompanied by a delegation of Ministers and business leaders in light of South Africa’s growing economic and people-to-people ties with these West African countries.
