In this regard, South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, stated: “This investment by Mercedes-Benz Cars endorses South Africa as a favourable destination for investment; and correspondingly, demonstrates our determination to work with all social partners to seize the opportunities that are opening up for greater investment and faster growth.”
Moreover, the Embassy representatives met with Dr Stefanie Hinz, “Director of the Department Strategy, Law, Foreign Trade and European Affairs of Baden-Württemberg”, in order to discuss South Africa latest developments. The meeting provided the German Government and the South African embassy an opportunity to strengthen relations, reflecting their ongoing commitment.
