South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has met with CEOs of major companies in the country to discuss their concerns amid growing anxiety about the economy and political stability.
- The meeting came amid rising tensions over issues such as corruption, load shedding, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy.
- The CEOs reportedly raised a range of issues with the president, including the need for greater policy clarity, support for small and medium-sized businesses, and measures to address crime and corruption.
- The meeting was seen as a positive step towards greater collaboration between government and the private sector, and a recognition of the important role that business plays in driving economic growth and development.
