Premier Ngoako Ramatlhodi’s visit to the United States (US) and Cuba has created suitable conditions for economic-investment and development here.
Premier Ramatlhodi’s office yesterday said the three-week long investment mission undertaken to the US and Cuba was a success.
‘The main objective of the mission was to explore opportunities for investments, particularly on Limpopo’s competitive advantages in the areas of mining, agriculture and tourism with the view to harness the growth and development of our economy,’ the premier said in a statement released by his office.

The Premier undertook the trip three weeks ago and returned to Limpopo on Monday.

He met with the US Black Chamber of Commerce in the different states of San Francisco, San Diego, Sacramento and Los Angeles.

Advocate Tony Ntsewa from the Premier’s Office today told BuaNews that the meetings were successful because some business people in these cities got first-time exposure to the concrete investment potential of Limpopo.

‘The business communities in these cities have committed themselves to explore the opportunities and possibilities of joint ventures presented to them and also visit Limpopo,’ said Advocate Ntsewa.

Advocate Ntsewa said the premier was also given the freedom of San Diego City and added the Limpopo government intended to enter into a trade agreement, amongst others, with San Diego and the other cities.

In Cuba, the premier signed the Memorandum of Understanding with the Holgiun Province to cooperate on agriculture, mining and tourism sectors.

The Holgiun Province has also committed itself to send more medical doctors to Limpopo.

‘I was impressed with the level of technological and infra-structural development in Holgiun Province and the opportunities that exist for both our government and the business community in Cuba,’ said Advocate Ramatlhodi.

MEC for Finance and Economical Development, Thaba Mufamadi, MEC for Health and Welfare, Sello Moloto and business people from Limpopo accompanied the Premier.
