Since achieving liberation in 1994, South Africa has made tremendous strides in bringing about political stability and building a better life for all its citizens.
We have a vibrant, growing and competitive economy supported by world class infrastructure, strong macro economic fundamentals and healthy public finances.
Currently, our economy is experiencing its longest upswing in recent history. Since 2004 our economic growth rate has been five fold the pre-1994 growth rate.
South Africa is also a fast growing and popular tourist destination, offering the visitor an unforgettable and hospitable cultural and culinary experience. South Africa is home to Africa’s busiest airport, the O.R. Tambo International Airport, which handles more than 10 million passengers a year.
We have a globally competitive financial services industry. The JSE Securities Exchange, our country’s equity and derivatives exchange, holds a treasured position as one of the top 20 exchanges in the world in terms of market capitalization.
South Africa also boasts modern transportation and logistics systems as well as advanced information and communication technologies infrastructure.
Our role as the Embassy is to promote and facilitate government to government relations with Turkey, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan. Similarly, we seek to promote trade and investment relations and to provide consular and immigration assistance.
