José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the 5th EU/South Africa Summit with Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, and Jacob Zuma, President of South Africa.
During the joint press conference José Manuel Barroso highlighted that South Africa was a key EU partner on the African continent and on the global stage. Their cooperation from Trade through Climate change to Development was a win-win situation.
José Manuel Barroso eventually briefly mentioned two last important international events – G20 and the UN climate conference in Durban. He stressed the importance that all G20 members do their share to bring the world economy back to a strong, sustainable, and balanced growth path. He also praised South Africa's engagement on green growth and climate issues.
