Proposed Objectives of a South African Parliamentary Group for Relations for the European Union

It is proposed that the establishment of a South African Parliamentary Group for Relations with the European Union will focus on:




  • Strengthening relations between the South African Parliament and the European Union. Making a presence and having a voice in the formation and implementation of EU Policy would only serve to strengthen South African foreign policy.

  • Compliment the Political Dialogue process led by the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

  • Create a necessary balance in our relations with the EU.

  • Work together with the SA Parliamentary Group that deals with the Joint ACP-EU Parliamentary group.

  • Strengthen relations with different political blocks and Sub-Committees of the European Parliament.

  • Monitor the Implementation of the TDCA and ensure its effectiveness.

  • Influence the European Parliament with regard to the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy and Development Cooperation.

  • Influence the EU Parliament to adopt pro development legislation to contribute towards poverty eradication in developing countries.

  • Host EU Parliamentarians when visiting South Africa.
