SA congratulates Hollande and looks to boost bilateral relations

Following Francois Hollande's takeover of the French presidency, the South African President, Mr. Jacob Zuma said he looks forward to further strengthening  bilateral and trade relations between the two countries, as he emphasised the role of France in international fora. "On behalf of the Government and the people of South Africa, I congratulate Mr Francois Hollande on winning the French Presidential elections. We would like to take this opportunity to extend our congratulations to Mr Hollande and the people of France for a successful election," he stated.
On a particular note, and echoing some oft-voiced concerns in Europe , South Africa, which still faces 3 main challenges, namely poverty, inequality and unemployment, seems to be improving ties with its peers who make up the BRICS. Following the South Africa-India Business Forum held at the Reserve Bank Conference Centre, Pretoria, Mr. Zuma drew attention to the prospective increase of South Africa-Indian trade.
