Progressive Government Trip

Asked why was the taxpayer funding the Prime Minister’s trip to South Africa for the Progressive Government summit, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that in terms of Progressive Government, that was the way it had always been done. However, in terms of this trip, there would still be meetings with other Heads of Government vis a vis trade matters, especially with people such as President Lula of Brazil, who the Prime Minister would not have a chance to meet otherwise. The Prime Minister would also still have a bilateral meeting with President Mbeki, which again would be Government business.
