The South African deciduous fruit industry organisation, Hortgro, said in a statement today that it welcomes the new president of the Republic of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, to lead our country into a new era of economic and social development.
Hortgro Chairperson, Nicholas Dicey, said leading any country – especially one like South Africa – is no easy task. “We have so many challenges on multiple levels, but we are confident that President Ramaphosa is the right person for the job. We, as an industry, wish him well and look forward to working with him and his new administration. We are committed to socio-economic transformation and ready to take South African agriculture to the next level.”
