Deputy Minister Alvin Botes had a courtesy meeting with Cuba’s Ambassador to South Africa, H.E Enrique Orta González.
On 15 May 1994, soon after South Africa’s democratic transition, SA 🇿🇦 and Cuba 🇨🇺 established formal diplomatic relations and opened resident Embassies in Pretoria (1994) and Havana (1995), respectively.
Cuba has since become an established strategic partner for South Africa in the Latin American region and in multilateral fora. The relations are characterised by high level political dialogue.
#SACubaRelations serve as a successful and exemplary model of South-South cooperation particularly in health training & services, human settlements technical exchange, public works technical assistance, cooperation on water resource management and water supply & on basic education.
