President Ramaphosa arrives in Botswana to attend the Sixth SACU Summit

President Cyril Ramaphosa has this morning, 29 June 2018, arrived in the Republic of Botswana to attend the Sixth Southern African Customs Union (SACU) Summit, which is scheduled to take place today in Gaborone.

SACU is the oldest Customs Union in the world constituted of Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland. The Summit of Heads of States and Government meets on an annual basis to discuss progress on the implementation of the agreed SACU Work Programme.

This year’s Summit will consider the progress made thus far by the Two Ministerial Task Teams on Trade and Industry and Finance, which were established in 2017 to facilitate the review of the 2002 SACU Agreement.

The Summit is also anticipated to provide a strategic direction on the region’s development integration agenda which aims to promote regional economic integration, industrialisation and economic diversification of SACU economies.

President Ramaphosa is accompanied by the Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies, and the Minister of Finance, Mr Nhlanhla Nene.
