Deputy Minister Mashego-Dlamini has said that: “Foreign policy in practice requires an effective interface among various stakeholders whose activities abroad have a bearing on whether or not South Africa achieves its goals".

Deputy Minister Mashego-Dlamini has furthermore said: “There is growing realisation in international relations that civil societies, NGOs, business and the whole of government have a reinforcing effect on a country’s foreign policy.”
