'The investment summit was an embarrassing success'

Chief Executive Officer for Business Leadership SA Bonang Mohale says the President has come up with good initiatives to move South Africa forward.

His comments come in light of the country's investment conference last week in which billions of rands was pledged by a number of firms.

The Investment Summit hosted delegates from around the world, local business people and civil societies to talk about investment opportunities in South Africa.

The investment summit was an embarrassing success.
