MINISTER NKOANA-MASHABANE HOSTS GUINEAN COUNTERPART

South Africa enjoys a long-standing relationship with the Government and the people of Guinea, solidified by the unconditional support that the people of Guinea extended to the people of South Africa during the time of the struggle against apartheid.

On 14 April, the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, hosted her Guinean counterpart, Minister of State of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate Guineans, Francois Lounceny Fall, for the Second Joint Commission for Cooperation (JCC) between South Africa and Guinea.

Speaking at the conclusion of the JCC, Minister Nkoana-Mashabane said that the meeting underscored the desire and the will of the two countries to trade, and exchange investments and skills with the view to unlock the potential for economic development and address the needs of our people.

“During our discussions, we agreed that there is great potential between our two countries that must be explored to further strengthen this relationship for mutual benefit. We are convinced that our efforts will produce tangible results for the benefit our people.

“In order to effect the decisions of this important meeting, we have decided that officials will meet at least once a year and make necessary follow-ups with the view to implement the decisions of this meeting.”
