Presidents local international engagementsPretoria – President Jacob Zuma has a number of local and international engagements coming up, including the G20 and visits to Germany and Tanzania.

The President has today joined other African Heads of State in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, for the inauguration of the newly elected president. President-elect John Magufuli will take over the high office after he was elected last month in a highly contested election.

President Zuma will also undertake an official visit to Germany next week, where he will be hosted by Chancellor, Dr Angela Merkel, according to Minister in the Presidency for Planning Monitoring and Evaluation, Jeff Radebe.

The Minister briefed media in Cape Town on Thursday on the outcomes of the Cabinet meeting held on Wednesday.


About The Project

South Africa's conduct of international relations, especially its role in international organisations like the UN Security Council, its choice of strategic partnerships, its leadership role in Africa, its public engagement and foreign policy decision making, has been intensely debated in the recent past. The FPA programme aims to provide a nuanced analysis and facilitate a structured discussion of South Africa's foreign policy in a changing world environment for purposes of informing its future direction.

Aims and Objectives of The Project

The purpose of this focus area is to unpack the extent to which the policy in its making, its nature and its application constitutes a principled and pragmatic response to a complex international environment. In doing so, we hope to be guided by an objective to promote a foreign policy that positions SA as a responsible global citizen committed to building bridges between various power blocs for the benefit of Africa and South Africans.
