Relations between the European Union and South Africa developed mainly during the 1990s, notably within the framework of development aid. South Africa is still an important partner of the European Union because of role it plays at regional level and worldwide level.
The Trade, Development and Cooperation Agreement (TDCA) is the main framework for relations between the two partners and is backed up by various forms of sectoral cooperation. South Africa also has qualified membership of the Cotonou Agreement (2000).
