H.E. Ambassador Doidge on behalf of South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa paid homage to the long and cordial friendship that has developed over many years between South Africa and Thailand and referred to the legacy of late Nelson Mandela and the wide ranging opportunities for trade and investment that continues to flourish in South Africa.
