On the other hand, Ambassador Rodríguez Zavalla said that Uruguay sees in South Africa a huge potential to further develop bilateral relations, based on the historical friendship and that, as a multicultural, diverse country, emerging economy and with reference to the many issues on the continental and international agenda, the possibilities in terms of cooperation, trade, cultural and multilateral issues between the two countries are endless.
