Denmark–South Africa relations
Denmark was a very strong supporter of the anti-apartheid movement. Queen Margrethe II paid a visit to South Africa in 1996. President Nelson Mandela visited Denmark in 1999. Denmark has always had a very active development cooperation programme with South Africa dating from the 1960s, which was changed to an assistance programme from 1995. Denmark assisted with 4 billion DKK. Denmark remains a strong supporter of NEPAD.
Trade between South Africa and Denmark has increased since 1994. Denmark has been providing aid to South Africa since that time.
Cultural relations between South Africa and Denmark are well established in among other forums, the Danish Society in South Africa (www.danish.co.za) and the Nordic-South African Business Association (www.nsba.co.za).
