President Ramaphosa's recent State Visit to the UK on 22-23 November highlighted the wide range of work the UK undertakes with South Africa's government to support sustainable economic growth, across both rural and urban communities.

In taking forward all our work, we engage with a range of stakeholders including NGOs and religious leaders.
