Approximately 200 guests attended the reception, including representatives of the Government of South Africa, diplomatic corps, industry, media, Serbian and Greek Church and communities, along with representatives of the Russian and Romanian Churches. Ambassador of the Republic of Serbia H.E. Bozin Nikolic addressed the audience along with Ms. Valerie Reni, who spoke on behalf of the Government of SA.

In his address, Ambassador Nikolic emphasised the historical and friendly ties between the two countries, Serbia's support to the then leaders of the independence movement, as well as the contribution of previous ambassadors to the advancement of the overall cooperation with South Africa.

He also highlighted the good political relations on both bilateral and multilateral levels, as well as the efforts undertaken with the aim of strengthening the economic and other forms of cooperation. In addition, the Ambassador emphasized the decoration which President of the Republic of Serbia Tomislav Nikolic conferred on President J. Zuma, as an expression of gratitude to South Africa for its support to Serbia's positions regarding many issues at the international level.
