Durban and Indonesia establish new relations
Premier of KwaZulu-Natal Sihle Zikalala welcomed Honorary Consul General of Indonesia, Ebrahim Patel at an event held on 29 September.

Patel will be based in the province, in Durban, and will serve as the link for the two countries to assist them to grow in various aspects. 

Premier Zikalala said it is important to continue to uphold and preserve the values and beneficial relations with international communities. He said South Africa has a long-standing relationship with the Republic of Indonesia as the two countries share common values of prosperity and safety for all.

“Indonesia is a strategic country to develop close ties in education and economic stimulation as it is known for trade and social engagement. As we further cement working relationships with Indonesia, we are creating an opportunity for economic and social growth in both countries,” he said.

Representing eThekwini Mayor Councillor Mxolisi Kaunda, eThekwini Speaker Councillor Weziwe Thusi said the establishment of the Consulate General in the City will strengthen the productive relationship and cooperation between the two countries.

“We are reinforcing mutual linkages with various countries for the benefit of the people of Durban and KwaZulu-Natal.  City leadership will be working closely with Honorary Patel on agreed areas of cooperation for the benefit of the people,” said Councillor Thusi.

She said the close cooperation will rebuild economies post Covid-19 and will achieve developmental goals to better the lives of residents.

The Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia, His Excellency Salam Al Farisi said the cooperation must reflect on sharing experiences in order to develop the economy of both countries.
