South African LEX Africa member Werksmans hosted a lunch for President Hery Rajaonarimampianina and Foreign Minister Razafitrimo on their recent visit to South Africa to attend President Zuma‘s inauguration.

The election of President Rajaonarimampianina promises to end the political crisis that has engulfedMadagascar since the 2009 coup which toppled former President Ravalomanana.

The World Bank and International Monetary Fund have restored normal relations and sanctions are being lifted. Madagascar has great potential especially in the oil, mining and tourism sectors. Challenges however remain.
