Brussels - The Mogôbagôba Dialogue

Ambassador Sooklal addresses sponsors of the Mogôbagôba Dialogue

The bright lobby of the Stanhope hotel in Brussels was the venue chosen by the South African Embassy to host a cocktail for the sponsors of the South African Embassy in Brussels’ 2010/2011 Annual report.
The Ambassador thanked the guests for taking the time to be present and for their continued support. The African continent, explained the Ambassador, is becoming an increasingly important player in world affairs. Growth in Europe is decreasing whereas growth in Africa is increasing. “10 years ago people spoke of Afro-pessimism but now there is talk of Afro-optimism”.
The Mogôbagôba Dialogue annual report was ‘revived’ 4 years ago with the help of sponsors shortly after the signing of the strategic partnership between South Africa and the EU. South Africa is currently the EU’s 13th trading partner and the EU is South Africa’s largest investor. During the latest SA-EU summit held in Kruger Pak, South Africa, a major part of the agenda was how to develop the infrastructure and develop trade. “In sponsoring this magazine we trust that you have also benefitted from reaching an important and influential readership”.
The Ambassador concluded by once again thanking the sponsors without whom it would be impossible to publish the Mogôbagôba Dialogue and particularly for remaining committed despite the difficult economic times. This year 850 copies were produced which have been distributed widely to visiting delegations and business contacts.
