PRETORIA, October 1 (Itar-Tass) - A large delegation of politicians and business people from the Republic of South Africa headed by Secretary General of the ruling African National Congress Gwede Mantashe will arrive in the Russian capital of Moscow on Tuesday. Mantashe plans to sign a memorandum on mutual understanding with the United Russia party.
Chairperson of the African National Congress Committee for International Affairs Obed Bapela, Treasurer General of the party Zweli Mkhize and a mission of the South African Progressive Business Forum consisting of about 60 business people will also visit Moscow, the Russian Embassy in the Republic of South Africa told Itar-Tass.
A delegation from the South African province KwaZulu-Natal headed by Governor Senzo Mchunu and Minister of Economic Development and Tourism of the province Michael Mabuyakhulu is already on a visit in Moscow. Thirty business people and 40 entertainers, who participate in the presentation seeking to attract investment and develop cooperation in production industries and tourism, came to Moscow together with them.
On Wednesday, the South African delegation will have a meeting at the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources, and then members of the Russia-South Africa Business Council will have talks with representatives of the Progressive Business Forum at the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
