SA celebrates 30 years of democracy in 2024.
South Africa’s ambassador to Egypt, Ntsiki J Mashimbye, reflects on the achievements and criticism of the country’s 30 years of democratic foreign policy.
This year, South Africa celebrates 30 years of freedom and democracy, which provides an opportunity to reflect on progress made, acknowledge mistakes, celebrate achievements, and recognise lessons learned in the past three decades.
South Africa is at a crucial juncture as it continues its efforts to shape the country’s foreign policy to address contemporary challenges and foster meaningful global relations. The evolution of our nation’s foreign policy reflects our journey from isolation to active and meaningful participation and re-integration in international affairs, driving the interests of the global south and, more specifically, the African Agenda.
