South Africa hosts Czech Republic Political Consultations

13 November 2018

Deputy Minister Luwellyn Landers hosted the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, Mr Martin Tlapa for Political Consultations on 09 November 2018. The 2018 Political Consultations focussed on Trade and Investment, Tourism, Defence Cooperation and Science and Technology.

The last round of Political Consultations took place in Prague, Czech Republic on 14-15 November 2016 when Deputy Minister Landers was hosted by Deputy Minister Tlapa for bilateral discussions and these were utilised to strengthen bilateral political and economic relations between the two countries, while the meeting also discussed co-operation in the field of Trade and Investment, Science & Technology, Defence and Education.

The most recent high-level visit between the two countries was the Official Visit to South Africa by the Czech Deputy Defence Minister, Mr Pavel Beran, in September 2018.

It is expected that this year’s Political Consultations will further enhance bilateral and multilateral co-operation whilst agreeing on means of increasing foreign direct investment into South Africa and improved South African value-added exports into the Czech Republic.

The 100th Anniversary of Czechoslovakia was recently celebrated in South Africa with folk groups from the Czech and Slovak Republics entertaining South African audiences. A successful Charity Gof Day was also hosted by the Czech Embassy to mark the occasion.
