Singapore and South Africa began diplomatic relations in 1992. The countries had an exchange of several high-level visits since then.

Reginah Mhaule, deputy minister of international relations and cooperation, South Africa, will represent the country in Singapore-Sub-Saharan ministerial exchange.

Mhaule will also participate in the Africa-Singapore Business Forum (ASBF), to be held from 28-29 August 2018. ASBF, launched in 2010, aims to foster trade between Africa and Asia.

The Singaporean government is looking to promote and expand Singapore-based companies in foreign markets including Africa, through initiatives such as ASBF and Sub-Saharan high-level ministerial exchange.

The annual meet, South Africa-Singapore Foreign Office Consultations (FOC), enhances cooperation between the two countries. The fourth FOC was held in Singapore in 2017. South Africa will be hosting the fifth FOC in 2018.
