With diplomatic relations between Thailand and South Africa reaching a quarter century later this year, the seminar explored how we can take the cordial relations to the next level, looking at future opportunities to cooperate both politically and economically.

As leading members of their respective regional economic communities, Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the Southern African Development Community, we also took a comparative look at how each country has managed regional and global issues, drawing lessons from each country’s experiences.
