South African Ambassador

World Affairs Council of Charlotte

In the last several decades, South Africa has seen a lot of turmoil, through apartheid and new political changes since then. The US and South Africa have begun in more recent years to have a solid relationship, even launching a strategic dialogue on a number of issues, including security and trade. The US is also helping South Africa with a number of major challenges, including HIV/AIDS, unemployment, education and more. The Ambassador from South Africa is in Charlotte today, and we'll sit down with him to talk about the challenges his country faces and about the ways the US and South Africa are working together, when Charlotte Talks.
