The 9th SA-DRC BNC will be preceded by a ministerial meeting to be held on 15 October 2015 and a senior officials’ meeting from 13 to 14 October 2015.
South Africa and the DRC maintain good diplomatic and political relations. The highest expression of the quality and significance of these diplomatic relations is the annual BNC co-chaired by the Heads of State. The BNC includes Commissions on Politics and Governance; Defence and Security; Economics, Finance and Infrastructure; and Humanitarian and Social Affairs.
During their official talks, the two Presidents will review a wide range of bilateral, regional and international issues.
