Joint Communiqué on the occasion of the 11th Meeting of the United Kingdom – South Africa Bilateral Ministerial Forum

The 2015  SA - UK Bilateral Forum agreed on an ambitious programme to further strengthen the partnership and promote the security and prosperity of both countries. They noted the particular importance of South Africa’s National Development Plan (NDP) as a framework for informing future cooperation, reflecting the 9 priorities announced by President Zuma in the 2015 State of the Nation Address.

During South Africa’s struggle for democracy, the British Anti Apartheid Movement played a high profile role in supporting the South African people in their struggle against apartheid and to establish a democratic, non-racial, non-sexist society.
