The mailing says progress to democracy in South Africa is painfully slow. Looking to the future, when the pressure of sanctions will no longer be needed because the birth of a democratic South Africa will have been secured, the South African Council of Churches (SACC) invited The Africa Fund and other long-time international allies to a conference co-sponsored by the World Council of Churches (WCC) to discuss the future role of investment in helping overcome the poverty left by apartheid. The mailing includes a press release, “CHURCH CONFERENCE OUTLINES CONDITIONS FOR LIFTING SANCTIONS” issued by SACC Communications, and the final statement from the meeting, the “Utrecht Conference Statement.” The press release says that conference participants recommend that the SACC "develop a Code of Conduct for domestic and foreign business" to encourage responsible and ethical investing. The mailing also discusses the ANC (African National Congress), elections, the distribution of income and wealth, a Transitional Executive Council (TEC), the Fellowship of National Councils of Churches in Southern and Eastern Africa, Pilatus PC-7 military trainer aircraft, and the South African Air Force (SADF).
