Speaking during a courtesy call on her by the Chief Executive Officer of Xodus Communications, Mr. Richard Abbey Jnr., Her Excellency Grace Jeanet Mason said her outfit will support this Pan African idea of celebrating young achievers on the continent.
She advised that the event should be used as a tool to promote culture and tourism in South Africa.

Her Excellency Grace Jeanet Mason commended Xodus Communications Limited for the initiative to encourage, empower and celebrate influential young businessmen and women on the continent.
She called on young business leaders under the age of forty to participate in the 2023 edition to experience South Africa.
The Chief Executive Officer of Xodus Communications Ltd, Richard Abbey Jnr., thanked the High Commissioner for the warm reception and the pledge to support the event.
“The uniqueness about the 2023 edition is that it will be a five-day event comprising tourism at the Safari, an entrepreneurs’ business summit and exhibition in Pretoria and Gauteng, and finally climaxed with an Awards night in Cape Town” he noted.
