South Africa's trade relations with China will be further cemented, with skills empowerment and job creation dominating discussions during next week?s five-day official visit by that country?s Labour and Social Security Ministry delegation. 

China?s Labour and Social Security Vice Minister ZHANG Xiajian and his compatriots arrive in Cape Town on Monday (9 October) where he and Labour Minister Membathisi Mdladlana will hold bilateral talks before signing a Memorandum of Understanding.

Between Tuesday and Friday, the visitors and the Labour Department?s top officials will visit several skills training projects in both the Western Cape and Gauteng in between meetings where they are expected to exchange expertise and ideas on enhancing skills development.

These include meeting officials of the Umsobomvu Youth Fund and the Agriculture SETA respectively to discuss employment creation, visiting the INDLELA skills assessment centre and the Tshwane North College to examine vocational training. The media is invited. The programme is attached.
