Following his meeting with President Mandela, President Clinton announced the following new initiatives within the U.S. aid program for South Africa: 1) the United States and South Africa will form a joint commission to promote cooperation between the two nations; 2) American loans will be used to guarantee nearly a half-billion dollars of new housing in South Africa; and 3) the United States will contribute $50 million to help bring electricity to the South African townships and $30 million to support basic health care there. The United States is also taking several actions to help advance President Mandela’s goal of expanding trade and investment. In addition, the Peace Corps will establish a presence in South Africa next year. close
