U.S., South Africa Sign Business Pacts: Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary and her South African counterpart, Pik Botha, presided over a ceremony in Pretoria where American and local executives signed agreements worth at least $50 million. O'Leary and Botha signed four business, energy and economic agreements between their countries that will lead to the creation of almost 2,000 jobs. The agreements form part of Washington's support of black economic empowerment in post-apartheid South Africa. O'Leary said her visit was undertaken to support goals for electric power as well as the development of local human resources.
