Mozambique Wants to Harvest India’s Experience in Agro-Processing Products

The Mozambican President, Filipe Nyusi said on Friday 12 January that his working visit to India had been positive, pointing to that Asian country’s experience in agro-processing as a priority for bilateral cooperation.

“In our meetings, we talked about agro-processing and industrialisation, precisely because it is on these subjects that we need to learn and gather experience. This will be fundamental for development,” said the statesman during a conference to take stock of the visit.

For the president, the focus on processing materials produced in the country should be done in stages, with co-operation with experienced countries to improve strategies.

Filipe Nyusi was in India for a four-day working visit, where he took part in the 10th edition of the Gujarat Global Summit [a global forum for business and networking, knowledge sharing and strategic partnerships for the inclusive growth and sustainable development of countries].

His visit came at a time when the Mozambican side is discussing the blocking of the export of pigeon peas to India. The transaction is the result of a memorandum of understanding with Mozambique, signed in 2016, providing for exemption from customs duties for Indian importers.

India is the largest producer and consumer of pigeon peas, and in recent weeks the Indian press has reported a 10 per cent rise in the price of the product in the country in two months, precisely because of the difficulties in importing from Mozambique.
