International Relations Minister, Dr. Naledi Pandor together with her Mozambican counterpart, Minister Verónica Macamo Dhlovo co-chaired the Ministerial Segment of the South Africa-Mozambique Bi-National Commission (BNC), at OR Tambo Building on 10 March 2022.
This third SA Mozambique BNC took place from 10-11 March 2022, since the advent of democracy in South Africa 🇿🇦 in 1994 and peace in Mozambique 🇲🇿, the two countries have strengthened their relations, especially the area of economic cooperation and investment.
This economic cooperation resulted in the implementation of multi-billion rand economic projects, inter alia, the Maputo Development Corridor and the Trilateral Spatial Development Initiative with Swaziland.
In 1997, SouthAfrica & Mozambique agreed to elevate Bilateral Relations, resulting in the conversion of the Joint Permanent Commission for Cooperation (JPC) chaired at Ministerial level, to a Bi-National Commission of Cooperation (BNC) chaired at Presidential level.
Furthermore, the SA Mozambique BNC has enabled the two countries to further explore new areas of cooperation.
