Feb 23, Colombo: South Africa's International Relations and Cooperation Deputy Minister Nomaindiya Mfeketo is scheduled to arrive in Sri Lanka Tuesday (24) on an official visit.

During her visit to Colombo from 24 - 28 February, representatives of the two countries are expected to sign cooperation agreements.

The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) on Monday said Deputy Minister Mfeketo will meet her counterpart and other senior government officials during the visit.

"It is expected that Deputy Minister Mfeketo will meet her counterpart and other important role-players in Sri Lanka during the course of her visit. South Africa has been asked to share with Sri Lanka its experience in terms of reconciliation and nation-building," the DIRCO said.

During the Deputy Minister Mfeketo's visit, South Africa and Sri Lanka will sign two agreements on tourism cooperation and cooperation between the South African and Sri Lankan Zoological Gardens.

At the same time, the Fifth Partnership Forum between South Africa and Sri Lanka will take place in Colombo on 24 and 25 February 2015 and a number of South African Government Departments will be represented.

This is the first high-level visit from South Africa to Sri Lanka since the new administration of President Maithripala Sirisena took over following the Presidential elections held on 08 January 2015.

It is also the first follow-up visit by a South African Government delegation since the visit to Sri Lanka in July 2014 by Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa as the Special Envoy of President Zuma to Sri Lanka.
