Brand South Africa will be in Melbourne and Sydney this week to engage with South Africans based in Australia on the country’s progress since the advent of democracy 20 years ago.
The agency said on the weekend that it would be showcasing both South Africa’s achievements over the past two decades and the work that was being done to address the country’s socio-economic challenges, with particular reference to the National Development Plan (NDP), also known as Vision 2030.
“It is also important for South Africans to know that they can be part of South Africa’s growth and development despite where they may now reside,” the agency said in a statement. “They are also invited to join 20 year commemorative events organised by the South African representatives in their countries of residence.”
The delegation, led by Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane and including Brand South Africa chairperson Chichi Maponya and CEO Miller Matola, will interact with South Africans based in Australia, as well as with individuals or organisations that are interested in the country’s offerings.
The Global South Africans Roundtable will take place at the Intercontinental Melbourne on Monday evening and at the Intercontinental Sydney on Wednesday evening.
The discussion can be followed on @Brand_SA using the hashtag #SA_Aus2014.
