The Embassy is tasked with coordinating the preparation and implementation of the annual bilateral government negotiations and consultations. The Embassy is also an important development policy partner to the South African government and cooperates closely with the National Treasury, as well as with various ministries and government departments. It also administers a micro project fund through which local organisations can obtain financial support.
