In line with government's mandate to make information accessible to all and bring government closer to the people, Government Communications (GCIS) has published the first edition of the Pocket Guide to South Africa 2003.
Content of the quick-fact, easy-to-read publication is largely based on information contained in the latest edition of the South Africa Yearbook, which is also published by the GCIS.
Similar to the objectives of the SA Yearbook, the Pocket Guide is also aimed at providing a useful reference tool to inform South Africans and the world on the efforts of government and the people of South Africa to create a better life for all.
