South Africa and Brazil enjoy strong relations

16 May 2017

South African International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane hosted the Minister of External Relations of the Federative Republic of Brazil, Mr Aloysio Nunes Ferreira, in Pretoria on Monday, 15 May 2017.

South Africa and Brazil enjoy strong relations at the bilateral and multilateral levels. At the bilateral level, the strategic partnership between the two countries finds expression in a Joint Ministerial Commission and, at the interregional level, it finds its expression in the form of IBSA (India, Brazil, South Africa) and BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa).

The visit is a reaffirmation of the strong bonds of friendship that exist between the two countries.

The Embassy of Brazil organized a Brazil–South Africa Business Seminar which was attended by a delegation of Brazilian business people who  accompanied the Minister, government agencies as well as South African entrepreneurs. The Business Seminar focussed on opportunities in areas such as energy and food production, as well as ways to enhance business relations between both countries.

South Africa and Brazil established diplomatic relations in 1948 and have, since then, concluded many cooperation agreements.

South Africa has historically been a net importer of goods from Brazil. South African exports to Brazil in 2016 accounted for US$ 336 million while Brazilian exports to South Africa totalled US$ 1.4 billion.

During 2016, a total of 38,814 Brazilians visited South Africa. In 2015, the total was 29,339, which marks a 32.3 % increase in arrivals from Brazil.
