Even though our countries differ, there are many parallels in the public and cultural debates on identity, integration and transformation. Our long term cultural policy is therefore focused on co-creating cultural interventions to build mutual understanding and trust.
Our mission is to promote inclusive economic growth and support Dutch businesses by strengthening entrepreneurship and cross-sectoral cooperation in South Africa.
