Source: Issued by: Department of Cooperative Governance
Source Date: Monday, October 14, 2013
Focus: Electronic and Mobile Government, ICT for MDGs, Training Institutions, Public Administration Schools, Knowledge Management in Government, Citizen Engagement, Institution and HR Management, Internet Governance
Country: South Africa
Created: Oct 14, 2013

The two countries undertook to strengthen cooperation in areas including legal frameworks for local governance, urban and strategic development planning, restructuring of local governments, strengthening community participation in local government, municipal engineering and planning and municipal elections.
The delegations emphasised that similar historical experiences laid a strong foundation for learning from each other and called on the various municipalities present to forge partnerships aimed at improving service delivery to the people.
In his opening remarks Deputy Minister Nel referred to statements made recently by President Jacob Zuma at the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly where he called upon the UN to be at the forefront of ensuring Palestinian self-determination and emphasised that while South Africa prepares to celebrate 20 years of freedom and democracy its struggle is not complete until the people of Palestine enjoy their right to self-determination.
In his reply Minister Alkoni stressed that the development of the people of Palestine required both developmental as well as political interventions as the non-resolution of political issues would continue to undermine developmental efforts.
