President Jacob Zuma says even though global investors have expressed concern about government policy uncertainties, he is satisfied that Team South Africa was able to have meaningful engagements at the World Economic Forum (WEF).

The World Economic Forum is taking place in Davos, Switzerland.

The annual event - which brings together, bankers, investors and political leaders - ended at the Swiss Alpine resort of Davos on Friday.

CEOs and chairmen of leading multinational companies quizzed President Zuma about his sacking of Nhlanhla Nene as finance minister.

In an exclusive interview with the SABC in Davos, President Zuma says he is impressed by how his delegation responded to investor concerns over the state of South Africa's economy.

“This is what everyone is saying that Team South Africa has been felt because of its convincing message and confidence. It’s also helpful if the private sector from South Africa shows confidence to its own government.  The message from South Africa has been received positively,” says Zuma.
