South Africa will also use the platform to deal with issues on the continent like the instability in Zimbabwe.
On Tuesday, Ramaphosa called for sanctions against the country to be lifted so it can be assisted by the rest of the world.
International Relations Minister Lindiwe Sisulu said it's an important matter.
“We would like to help to the extent that it is possible and affordable for us. It’s not a question of what they are asking for, it’s what’s affordable for us. We want to help them because a stable Zimbabwe is good for the region,” she said.
On Thursday, Ramphosa will address the South African investment seminar where he will boost the country's profile as a partner of choice.
