Macpherson, Mr DW to ask the Minister of Trade and Industry

Why did he not attend the opening of the first provincial One Stop Shop for InvestSA in Cape Town that was opened by the President of the Republic, Mr Jacob G Zuma?

Reply:

At the time, I was undergoing a medical procedure that disfigured my face. I was advised by my medical practioner to avoid high profile public events. The President agreed that, under the circumstances, the Ministry could be represented by the Deputy Minister.
