first_img2 May 2012 President Jacob Zuma, in talks with visiting Indian President Pratibha Devisingh Patil on Wednesday, extended an invitation to the Asian nation to invest in South Africa’s massive, state-led infrastructure drive. “We have once again extended an invitation to Indian business to invest in our infrastructure development programme, in which we are to invest more than R800-billion until 2014,” Zuma said following his meeting in Pretoria with Patil, who began his state visit to the country on Wednesday. Zuma noted the fact that relations between the two countries dated back many years, that South Africa and India also shared a history of struggle against colonial oppression and racism, as well as “deep social, economic and cultural ties”.R111-billion trade target for 2014 While trade was increasing steadily, “we should all work to reach even higher figures”, Zuma told journalists. According to the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, trade between the two countries stood at R48.2-billion as of November 2011, with South African exports at R21.9-billion and imports from India at R26.3-billion. The two countries have set a bilateral trade target of R111-billion to be reached by 2014. Patil said relations between South African and India had taken on a robust and dynamic character, adding that strong institutional frameworks for co-operation in the economic, political and technological fields were in place. “Our bilateral relations today are wide-ranging, multi-dimensional and mutually beneficial,” Patil told journalists. “Our shared and abiding commitment to the ideals of democracy has only reinforced our close and friendly ties.”‘Opportunities need to be explored’ Since the establishment of full diplomatic relations between South Africa and India in 1993, numerous high-level visits have taken place between the two countries, with cooperation agreements signed in trade, investment, education, defence, and information and communication technology (ICT). “We have agreed to monitor the implementation of various agreements that exist,” Patil said, adding that they were looking into expanding these into areas including health, science and technology and infrastructure. “We felt that considerable opportunities need to be explored,” said Patil, adding that India was also interested in working with South Africa to develop a Ghandi heritage site in the country. Zuma said the two presidents had looked at ways in which “we can further translate our historical ties into meaningful socio-economic development cooperation.” Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now For many decades, salespeople were taught to find “the” decision-maker, that one person who had the authority to bind a company to a deal. They were taught that they needed to reach the C-suite if they were to create and capture opportunities. Most deals still need an executive sponsor of some kind, and all of them require someone with the authority to bind the company to a deal.Because we have focused for so long on authority, there has been a tendency for some to believe that other people are not as important to winning a deal, and such, they have not treated the with appropriate respect, preferring to look over the shoulder and up the organizational chart. This is a mistake, and it should be remedied.Treating people as if they are important is a hedge. The fact of the matter is, you don’t know who has what level of influence within their company, and whose ear they have.You might believe that someone’s title indicates that they are not necessary to a deal, when that person might be just the person you need to gain access to the person who would most value from what you do.You might mistakenly be ignoring someone because they don’t appear to have any influence, when they might very well be the person who her peers look to for advice in the area where you can help. You might believe that people who are lower on the organizational chart are somehow less important to winning a deal than people at the higher rungs of the ladder, but to believe this is to make a mistake.Even though you believe someone may not be integral to winning business, you should treat everyone as if they are important, as though wants and needs are important to you, and you should always consider their needs. You should do this because it’s the right thing to do. But if you don’t believe it’s true, do it anyway as a hedge against behaving in a way that hurts you later.last_img read more
