QUOTE

NATIONAL ASSEMBLY

FOR WRITTEN REPLY

QUESTION NO: 1656

PUBLISHED IN INTERNAL QUESTION PAPER NO 15 OF 28 MAY 2010

MR KS MUBU (DA) TO ASK THE MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND COOPERATION:

Whether the Government intends on establishing a High Commission /Embassy in Bangladesh; if not, why not; if so, (a) when and (b) What are the further details,

REPLY:

Yes.               

  1. Due to the effects of the global economic downturn, the current budget of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation does not allow for the opening of a South African Mission in Dhaka, Bangladesh at this time. This matter will be considered once the financial situation of the Department improves.

  2. It should be noted that the Department of International Relations and Cooperation has recently appointed an Honorary Consul to represent South Africa’s interests in Bangladesh. This is the first step in a long process toward the realisation of a South African Mission being established in Dhaka.
