Twelve months after the Democratic Alliance (DA) won some of South Africa’s most important cities in nationwide local elections, Liberal International is proud to announce that the global federation of liberal and democratic political parties will convene its 199th Executive Committee meeting in DA-governed Johannesburg – the largest city in South Africa and one of the wealthiest cities on the continent. The ExCom will be held in partnership with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation (FNF) between 27-29th October 2017.
Drawing inspiration from best practice around the world, and in particular from the staggering success of the Democratic Alliance, the 199th Executive Committee of Liberal International will help equip delegates with the theoretical and practical knowledge to govern better, under the theme: Better Governance: Liberal answers to twenty-first century challenges.
Registration is now open via the LI website, where a programme and practical visits are detailed – please ensure that the guidelines are followed carefully.
The venue for the ExCom will be the Radisson Blu Gautrain. LI has arranged a special rate for delegates starting from €113 per night including breakfast and wifi access. LI member parties have been sent details of the process to reserve rooms and delegates must liaise directly with their international officer.
