CAPE TOWN - The three-day World Economic Forum on Africa continues in Cape Town today.

 
African leaders and businesspeople are discussing  the continent’s integration agenda.
 
They&39;re also expected to renew commitments to sustainable growth and development. 
 
While some participants have said investment in infrastructure is key to the continent&39;s economic growth, South Africa is keen to woo investors in industries that drive job creation. 
 
Those include agriculture, mining, tourism and manufacturing. 
 
Minister in the Presidency Trevor Manuel says the economic and technological gap that previously existed between South Africa and the rest of the continent, is fast closing.
