“I want to see strong African economies that British companies can do business with in a free and fair partnership, at the very heart of which should be job creation. Whether through creating new customers for British exporters or opportunities for British investors, our integrated global economy means healthy African economies are good news for British and African people”. Prime Minister Theresa May, 28, August 2018, South Africa.
